Haiti Day 1- 12-27-10
Today has been a crazy day. We all started out at about 3am to begin this crazy travel day. The airports were crazy and several of our flights were overbooked. When we got to Dallas we learned that the flight to ft. Lauderdale was way overbooked. Everyone was there with the exception of our team member Sarah whose flight from Abilene was delayed. She literally ran to the gate and they wouldn't let her on and gave her seat away. Although she got stranded she is safe and will join us tomorrow here in Haiti. Once we arrived in ft lauderdale we learned that they checked ryan's bag to ft lauderdale and not port au prince... So, with 15 minutes until boarding time Ryan and jeff ran to baggage claim and got his bag. Then, with the help of some airline personnel they were both put into wheelchairs and were allowed to go straight through security. It was craziness but they made it just in time. God is good. When we finally made it to Haiti everything went smoothly. We are learning new things. Tasting new foods (goat). And eager to see what god does this week.

Praise- we learned that a witch doctor at guibert accepted and believes in Christ yesterday during their service! PTL
