This trip had a lot of highlights, most of which included soccer. I love soccer. Under the bridge near the house where we ate, these guys were playing soccer from 5 to about 7. I played with them for two days along with some others. They were really good, and the best player, Ricardo was very nice. My ultimate highlight, though, was doing VBS. Before and after VBS, I would always have a ball with me and some Dominican kids would come and pass with me. This one kid though, Josales, was amazing. He was about 6 years old and he could do some things some players on my team can’t do. But at the end of our time at that VBS, I took a picture with him, and he got real close to me, like I was his dad or brother. Although I only got to know him for about two days, I felt like I had known him for years. I wish I could have stayed at that VBS for the whole week, though, because when you just start to bond with someone, then you have to leave to go to another VBS instead of building a real relationship with the kids. Other than that, though, I have no regrets.
