Colin Yoder talked about calf pneumonia; I presented some of our observations that might help them improve production; Jim told the group that if he lived in the Dominican Republic he was sure he would be friends with all of them; and Dick Price gave a meaningful presentation about life with Christ in our hearts and invited them to join us in this relationship.

Hello all. Jim and I boarded a public bus to Santo Domingo this morning, met a driver arranged for us by our hosts in Santiago who took us to our nephew (close enough) Dillon's apartment. Different world here as we expected: Hot water that runs without priming a pump and risking a shock when you pull the breaker, bustling city instead of horse-drawn milk delivery. We'll see if the yipping dog made the trip. The rascal seemed to follow us yesterday from Las caobas to Santiago. We may be content to listen to traffic tonight. They are taking us out to dinner this evening. Had streeside hors d'oeuvres of fried pork and boiled cassava for starters. Both healthy and well.
