On the last full day of being in the Dominican we went to Catalina Island. First we drove about 45 minutes to an inlet where we boarded a small boat. On this boat we chugged along at a very snail-like pace, seeing the island as soon as we got out of the inlet. It was a beautiful day with white fluffy clouds against a deep blue sky above and the clear blue water below. We had about two hours to enjoy this before we neared the island. : )

Around 3:00 we loaded back onto the small boat that took us to the larger boat and headed home on very rough waters! It was funny because when we reached the inlet the boat just died on us. The workers were running around trying to figure out what was wrong and we were sitting there wondering if we'd drift back out to sea! Thankfully they got the motor started again and we were parked and headed back to the compound before we knew it!

I also learned that I don't have to be on a missions trip to be a missionary. I can do that right here where I am. Not that I don't want to go back to the D.R.! I hope to go back next year. I want to go back right now! ; ) But I don't want to stop spreading the gospel while I'm in the States just because it's not considered a missions trip.
