Campamento Day 4

24 Jun

Woman of Faith is Mother Lange. The theme is “Teach Others”

Mary Lange lived a rich life teaching children of freed slaves. She also started the first Catholoc Order for African American women. You can read more about her at

We were going to make vision boards today, but a slight change to our first day led to not enough magazines. I brought some down, packing to buy more at the supermarket by El Carmelo, the Sisters’ home in Santo Domingo. But we went to Azua from the airport without stopping.

So we decorated the boxes that a friend donated. She saw her company was throwing these away. She knew about this Ministry. She thought the girls would like them. She was right! Please keep us in mind all year long 🙂

Ready for church, wearing a new dress and a matching purse – the “poor widow” craft.

Sister Fifi made two travel groups, because the guagua (minivan) can only hold half of us. So we go to the beach, pool, and church in two groups. This is group one at the park in front of the parish.

    So fun to read these posts! It brings back warm memories of my trips there in the 90s and early 2000’s. Hugs and love to all!
