<![CDATA[The team has safely arrived in Haiti! The 86 degree weather was a pleasant welcome off the plane! Raph and Tim are already doing a wonderful job serving the team. They have quickly found their footing in a new country with new people and new experiences. The travel day went without trouble. The drive back to the pastor’s house allowed us to see the US Embassy, the UN building, people on the streets (and cows for that matter), and the other sites of Port-au-Prince. At the house we had dinner of beets and cabbage salad, rice, plantains, and barbeque chicken. Even though it was only 8:00, everyone was starting to get tired, the mosquitos were coming out, and it was getting really dark. On Wednesday we spent the day at the school. Raph and Tim were both in their element. Tim spent the entire day surrounded by children. He entertained them and they entertained him. Raph served in a couple areas and seemed to connect with the translators. Both guys are doing a wonderful job serving, connecting, and having fun!]]>
Thank you so much for providing this opportunity for Tim. I know that he feels God leading him in a direction that is along these lines and as a mom I am grateful he can experience it in order to help guide him along the right path. Many prayers are with that team this week. We think they have a couple of pretty special and unique young men with them. But of course, we are probably very predjudiced in that direction.
Great to have an update! The students and staff have been praying for you three and your team all week!
