March 11, 2019! Day One: Travel Day

After a very long and eventful day, we have finally arrived at our home for the next 8 days. I have never been on a mission trip and as you can assume.. I was feeling very anxious about the unknown, but the second I stepped out of the airport, I felt at home. Watching my returning team members reunite with the translators we will be with all week and being greeted with open arms was very reassuring. 

The most exciting part of my day was when the other first time Haiti goers and I took our first Tap-Tap ride from the airport to our home! We all agreed it felt like a roller coaster.

When we arrived at our home, I was so excited to see where I would get to stay for the next 8 days. The house is a very welcoming and happy place to be. Its filled with bright colors and pictures of all of Healing Haiti's accomplishments. We all settled in quickly and had walking tacos for dinner! All in all, I am beyond excited to see where Haiti will take us this week!
