Missionary Trip to the Dominican Republic
The Sisters from Saint Benedict Center have just returned from a missionary trip to the Dominican Republic. You can see a slide show of their trip here.
You need quicktime and it does take a few minutes to load.
This is their second trip this year and they are focusing on the "bateys" villages where Haitian workers live. They work in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic and I'm sure you can imagine what the conditions in which they live are like. And yet they are happy and always smiling. (Just like us, right?)
