fun, huh? ;-)
it was hard leaving our kids. but not SUPER hard. we would miss them. they would miss us. but this was all GOOD stuff.
we hugged them all right after school. i stapled 23 packets that needed to be given to sawyer's teacher of scholastic book order forms. bailey braided my hair. and off we drove to the airport.
we were able to check our bags from here all the way to port au prince. this was nice because we weren't going to have to lug them to the hotel and back that night. BUT it was nerve-wracking because...um...haiti! how long would they sit there? how in the WORLD would we meet up with them in 24 hours?!? we just trusted and prayed. (and so did you!! THANK YOU!)
our team: pat, me, abi, aaron and pete.
sleepy...but ready to get there!
landed in haiti RIGHT on schedule. and ALL our bags were there! INCLUDING the $2000 keyboard we were bringing for the church. ahhh...we were SO excited!
aaron had this binder with him with ALL our important info. we joked him about it, but it saved us on numerous occasions.
i took this picture, knowing it was a special moment. but NOW, having KNOWN the pastor for a few days, i GET this hug and ADORE that smile.
