On Tuesday we did a service activity outside Santo Domingo at Jerico, a private school supported by the Christian Reformed Church. Four months ago a mission group had laid down a concrete court, and today our job was to paint it for basketball and volleyball games. It had rained that morning, so the first job was to sweep the water off the concrete so that it would dry more quickly, and in the tropical heat that didn’t take long. Two school employees marked out the lines, and then we got busy with brushes, rollers and a few dozen cans of paint. The weather was just right; although it threatened to rain again, we were fortunate that it didn’t shower on our paint, but most of the day was overcast and kept the direct sun off us. By the end of the day, we felt quite proud of how we had changed the face of the court.
