I have never been there but my sister is a missionary in the DR. Her family has lived there for 15 years now. They love it. If you stay in a nice hotel/resort and keep to the touristy areas you will do fine. From what I understand it is a fairly reasonable vacation.
Becky, sounds good, price wise too.
I have some missionaries in my family too, or were going to be.. I know you are proud of your Sister.. AJ has some of the Best fans Indeed.Billy Graham's wife or (Ruth) was a missionary in China, my understanding. I admire anyone who does this work.
