Salto el Limon


Here in the Dominican Republic, as always the weather changes very drastically from sunny to rainy to windy back to sunny again... and it wasn't an exception for the trip we had on the 27th to the waterfall Salto El Limon.

The day started really well, full of excitment to go out with the CARP members, invited guests and GPA volunteers. It was a long drive but through singing, talking to those around us, and reflecting, the time passed quickly and, before we knew it, we'd arrived to our destination, or so we thought.

Soon we realized that we had to walk another 30 minutes to get to the waterfall, and not even 10 minutes into the hike it started to rain very very hard! The path was filled with mud and rocks mixed in with horse droppings. Everyone cautiously made their way through the rocky, muddy path.

It was definitely an unforgettable, challenging, and ultimately worthwhile experience for everyone.
When we finally arrived to the waterfall, we could feel God blessing us for overcoming the difficulties because, right when we arrived, it became very sunny. We all enjoyed ourselves in God's natural and powerful beauty through the waterfalls and lakes.

Within the group,  2 guests invited by our CIG USA missionary team had joined our trip. They enjoyed it a lot and it was an amazing opportunity for them to get to know our movement, our CARP/GPA family even more.

 Nataly, one of the CARP members, said "This was an exciting trip, with a lot of rain, mud and poop but bonding with other young people and enjoying the nature that God created was definitely fun."

On the way back it started raining again... towards the end we almost didn't feel the rain at all because we wanted to finish this experience with joy and most importantly, with God.
Thank you Heavenly Parent and True Parents for giving us this opportunity to get to know the members and the guests even more!
