Last day of adventures in the DR

Hey everyone we are going to try and keep this short and sweet. Today was EPIC! We got the treat of sleeping in until 730 this morning then prepared ourselves for a day on the water. When we say water we mean RAPIDS, white water rapids! Our stomachs were in knots on the way but once we were in our boats nothing could stop us and there was no turning back. Our guide, Guerro, made the trip fun even though he had to save us a few times. The landscape was unlike anything we could ever see in the states with 30 foot cliffs on each side of the river. We took advantage of these cliffs and couragously jumped from the top. After all the excitement we returned to our villas to get ready for a night on the town. We visited each souvenior shop in search of the perfect gifts for our friends and family. It finally hit us that the end of this trip will be bitter sweet because we are going back to our real families and have to leave behind the new family we developed over the course of the week. Each of our girls, Esther and Rafe, from the Varsity Revolution team made a lasting impression on us and we are so grateful for their open hearts and willingness to embrace us on and off the court. This missions trip was in our opinion an absolute success and we never could have imagined the ways God would work through us.

With love,
Aja' Walker and Lauren Howard
