Santo Domingo -> La Romana

It's been a great experience staying in the capital the past 10 days. We won every game here except one and we are leaving Santo Domingo with a 13-1 record. 
Yesterday was a national holiday here but UNPHU wanted one more shot at beating us. We battled back and forth for the first 5 or 6 innings but took charge later in the game to secure the win. After the game we shared our message and had the players fill out sheets to get more information on them. CRU and AIA are trying to gain a stronger influence at UNPHU and we are hoping that we played a big role in making that happen. 

Today was a pitchers deal against a UASD team that was clearly in the mood for some revenge today. Their lineup changed a bit from the game earlier this week and their one run was a solo shot by a player who spent two years at the Yankees Dominican academy. We had already scored at that point so the game was tied 1-1. It stayed that way through the game and we would need a big hit in extra innings to take a 2-1 lead that held strong in the bottom half. After the game we had a player share one of the best testimonies yet that definitely connected with the players of UASD. We then exchanged AIA necklaces for UASD tshirts as we had a great connection with this team as well. 

Tomorrow morning we are heading over to Boca Chica beach for a much needed off day. This weekend will be a lot of fun as we head to La Romana to finish up the last leg of the trip. We will also spend some time in the baseball capital of the DR, San Pedro. The next week holds a lot more mission based work but we will also get a fair share of games in. Can't wait to see what God has in store before I get home. It might be tough to get wifi in the days to come so bear with me as I try to keep up with posts. Dios te bendiga!
