Colossians 3:14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
This spring break I journeyed to a little town outside of Santo Domingo called Cielo (Spanish for “heaven”). I came in to spring break knowing that the people of Cielo were going to help save me, and bypassed the notion that it might be the other way around.
The people of Cielo are loving. From old to young they will wrap you in unconditional love before even knowing your first name. At church they kiss you on the cheek and wish God’s blessing upon you.
In Cielo, I helped build houses and paint buildings. I played “caballo”, held hands, and danced. I also got to meet my sponsor child, Engely. I will help Engely financially to receive an education and health care. Engely’s favorite color is white and she loves to study. Engely wants to save the world from climate change. She is probably going to win a noble prize, but that’s just my opinion.
