Off to help Haiti

After arriving in at 11:00 pm from Santo Domingo, Ariel and I passed by the church on our way home. The team was just closing the doors of the loaded truck on their way to Haiti. It is an 8-9 hour trip to the border, so they wanted to do that part at night, to be ready to enter Haiti early in the morning. From there it is another few hours to arrive into Port au Prince. The group is formed of Dominican and Haitian men who have a deep desire to serve and come alongside the Haitians in this process. We know this will be the first of many trips into Haiti, as the whole church is excited about being involved and reconstruction. The food bags were all loaded along with all other supplies that were purchased for donation. Thank you again, with all my heart, for the donations that you have sent. We prayed for protection and guidance right before the group headed out. There is also a van following the truck in with Haitians that are looking for family members. We hope there are happy reunions.
As for future donations, we know there will be more trips, so you can still feel free to donate through the blog (not tax-deductible though) for direct relief to the Haitains. It has been heart-warming to see the outpouring of support that has come in. Thank you.
