There is "building a bridge" in a figurative sense, and then there is "building a bridge" in a literal sense. A few weeks ago, the Escuela Caribe staff and students helped to build a bridge, LITERALLY. How fun is that? ("Amazing and super fun!" I hear you say!)
The students spent several days working alongside an incoming mission team building a bridge across the river for a little community outside of Jarabacoa.
How often can a teenager (or any adult or regular person) say that they helped to build a bridge? There have been many unique opportunities for service this summer, and it has been amazing to witness the students work so hard for others!
