ANNA & ABBY’S DAILY BLOG (Day 1)
The day started off pressing snooze 20 times. After being stuck behind snow plows and surviving the icy roads we all met at around 4:15. We headed to security (Wayne only forgot his luggage once!) With our coffee and breakfast we all flew to Atlanta, GA. After the short layover we were finally on our way to Port-au-Prince. Flying over Haiti was breathtaking and the anticipation grew as we landed. The tap tap picked us up, and we squeezed all 18 of us on there. We all took in the sights surrounding us- including goats, chickens, and dogs roaming in the streets.
Arriving at the guest house, we were greeted by 2 of the long term missionaries. The puppies and dogs got a lot of attention as we relaxed outside together, discussing our smooth travel day and the Vikings victory (none of us can still believe it actually happened.)
For dinner, we had sloppy joes (an American classic), beans, and peppers. By the end of the meal, half of us were struggling to keep our eyes open. We cleaned up our dishes and sat among each other on the couches, discussing our words of the day. It has been a fun experience seeing how we are bonding together. We all bring our own different strengths to the team. We can’t wait to see what He has in store for us tomorrow as we take on a challenging day- distributing water in Cite Soleil!
