Great to be back in Haiti! We arrived last night after a great flight and wonderful fellowship with the team. There are many newcomers as well as the usual gang I came to like so well last year. First setback of the trip as we got here- 15 of our 50 bags didn't make it! Worst of all, 2 of them were the coolers with all of our desserts for the week! After about 1.5 hours of sorting and figuring out which ones were missing and matching luggage tags with the Haitian airport staff, we found out they were still in Miami. They would get here the next day by 4pm! Dessert is part of the reason some of us are here, so that was a big bummer! God tells us to always look for the blessing even in the hard times though. Since it took us so long to get things organized and find the missing bags, it made it later in the evening. The airport customs staff were ready to leave, so they let us through without even asking about or checking our bags! What a big answer to prayer since they always question medical supplies and medicines sometimes asking for more money to pass them. Even better news, our bags did come through today with the coolers of desserts and everything was safe, edible, and accounted for!
Serving him faithfully,
