At 8:00 this morning, we began our eleven hour journey to Port-au-Prince. We began with goodbyes,
prayer, and Ross' run-in with the TSA. Fortunately, after a brief backroom interrogation, we were on
our way to Atlanta where we had a two-hour layover, long enough to get lunch and get psyched up
for the final leg of our journey.
Upon arriving in Haiti, we paid the $10 admission fee into the country and quickly made our way
through customs, got our bags, and boarded the famous Tap-tap (an open air truck not for the faint of
heart). It was quite the experience to say the least! We saw cars passing left and right, dogs roaming
the street, and locals watching us as we passed by.
Upon arriving at the enormous purple doors leading to the guest house, we were greeted by several
guard dogs. The hospitality of the staff, along with the employees at Healing
Haiti, has made us feel more at home than we could have ever expected. Shortly after getting settled
in, we had a delicious dinner, had some free time, and settled in for the night.
Tomorrow, we will be going to Grace Village where we will be visiting four elders and bringing
them meals as well as seeing the mass grave site from the 2010 earthquake. Continue to pray for us
as we begin our time of serving the Haitian people.
