Our journey begins....bright and early at 4 am our entire team (minus 2-whom we met in Miami!) met at the airport in MN. We all got through security and made it through to our connection in Miami to meet up with Emily and Matthew! All 17 of us then made the adventure to Haiti. The long-anticipated adventure that each one of us has been preparing ourselves for both mentally and spiritually, as a team and as individuals. It's so exciting to see what God has in store for us, what He has prepared for us in advance. We are all so blessed to have been able to make this journey with our parents and kids team, so grateful for all that He has shown us and will show us this week. We are ready to serve and be a shining light to all we encounter in Haiti. After arriving at the guesthouse and meeting the missionaries, we sorted through all our luggage to prepare our donations, had a fantastic supper (shepherd's pie, biscuits, and salad!), and headed to the pool to cool off from the Haiti heat! Back to the guesthouse for team devotions, and off to bed early to begin our first day serving in the field tomorrow! We pray that God would be ever present in all we say and do, and pray for a fantastic week of team building relationships! God bless all of our families back home (we love you!!).
