We Are a Family: Dominican Republic 6

Christina Kopp – June 13, 2014

 

The house is finished! On Thursday evening, the Deerfield group celebrated with the Dominican volunteers who helped build the house and the family who will now reside there. Max McEvoy ’15 and Kate Palmer ’16 delivered thank you speeches in Spanish to the family and community volunteers.  Here are both Max and Kate’s speeches combined in both Spanish and English.

Hola! Primero gustaria a decir que estamos muy impresionante de este comunidad. Nunca hemos visto un comunidad que trabaja juntos bien. Todos voluntan a creer una casa para una familia muy buena. Yo se que todo nuestro grupo teniamos mucho divertido. 

Hello! First we would like to say that we have been impressed by this community. We have never seen a community work so hard. All volunteered to create the house for a great family.

Para nosotros, la cosa mas importante en nuestra escuela es la comunidad. Del primer dia aqui fue obvio que ellos tienen un comunidad muy fuerte lleno de personas buenas que trabajan muy duro. Entonces miramos a su comunidad como un modelo bueno. Por este semana nuestro grupo de estudiantes hemos trabajado muy duro pero tambien hemos creado un grupo de amigos. En Martes, Philip Dijo que nuestro grupo era un familia. Estamos de acuerdo.

At Deerfield community is the most important facet of school. From the first days here it was obvious that you all have a strong and cohesive community full good people who work very hard. So we have seen your community as a good model to follow. Throughout the week we have grown as a group while working very hard. On Tuesday Phil said that we are a family; we all agreed.

Finalmente, nosotros hemos disfrutado este semana mucho porque sentamos parte de su comunidad y familia. Despues de todos Los Dias, Jose nos pregunto sober el parte mejor del dia, para todos la contesta fue sobre hablando con Los chicos como Jesus, pollo Adan Dan y David, y tambien sobre trabajando con Los trabajadores. Este semana fue fantastica y tambien se que nunca vamos a olvidar esta experiencia. Ellos han cambiado nuestras vidas.

Finally we would like to say that we have thoroughly enjoyed this week because we felt part of this community and family. After everyday Jose would ask us what our favorite part of the day was. All of our answers included the children and community members that we worked with. We will never forget this week. You have changed our lives, thank you for the fantastic week.
