Mission Work is Messy ;-)

Whew!  What a day . . .

So, some bumps appeared in the road, but we are all still very excited about the trip to Haiti.  As of now, everyone will be departing tomorrow for Cap Haitien rather than today.  The pilot needed some extra time to do some work on the generator on his plane, but we didn't put up a fight - we want that plane in tip-top shape!

We believe (fingers crossed ;-)  ) that we have all of the passenger information that we need for the pilots, and we spent a good deal of today divvying up all of the supplies that we have received.  The outpouring of donations from individuals and hospitals has been tremendous!

Being the introvert that I am (wink, wink), I just didn't know what to do with myself when the cameras and reporters showed up from the TV station!  Somehow I ended up being interviewed along with my dad, our transportation coordinator, and another doctor who will be going with us.  You might see me on News14 tonight!

Even with the stress, Josh and I are so happy and grateful to be taking such an active role in this project.  It really allows us to get a feel for how we will work together on MMI projects in the future.  We are constantly learning and we feel that we are definitely up for the challenge!

God willing, we'll be flying out to Cap Haitien tomorrow morning.

Love and God Bless
