Hello friends and family and greetings from the Healing Haiti guesthouse in Port Au Prince! After much anticipation, packing, and prayers, we arrived safely in Haiti this afternoon for our week long trip. After landing here, we squeezed our luggage (most of us like to think we are light packers...I think we’re wrong) and our group of 17 onto the tap tap for a (relatively) smooth ride to the guest house. We relaxed for a little bit before enjoying some Haitian style tacos together in the dining room. We’ve only had a few meetings to prepare together (and some of us met for the first time today) but it already feels like we’re becoming a family. It is so clear that God has specifically chosen each one of us and our special gifts to contribute to this team and serve on this trip. During devotional time after dinner, we had the opportunity to share our spiritual gifts and decompress on the balcony. We went over our game plan for tomorrow (tune in to the blog tomorrow night) and closed in a prayer led by Chloe. We are feeling inspired and encouraged by those of you at home who continue to pray for us. Tomorrow is a big day and we can’t wait to see what God has in store for our first full day of serving!
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. - 1 Peter 3:8
