We are counting the days to our trip. It has come so incredibly fast. God has worked in so many ways to make this a very successful trip, it just humbles me on a daily basis.
The special people in our lives, helping us prepare for our journey, friends, family, and even complete strangers.
We packed diapers that were made and donated into 7 different suitcases. This is nothing short of amazing. The time that was put into this project, donated time, is very appreciated. A special shout out to all the ladies that participated in this project.
We also packed close to 300 feminine hygiene pads. We have several more that are in the final stages of being completed and can be brought on our next trip. This will be such an amazing gift to the young girls in Haiti that miss so much valuable time in school due to their monthly cycles. Again, every one of these was put together with love and donated out of kindness. Thank you.
We had two suitcases of donated items from a church in Henning, and another from the Christian school in Bluffton. Close friends and relatives gave numerous items to bring to the children and families in Haiti.
We are scheduled to Depart from the Minneapolis airport at 5:50 am on Friday the 4th of April. We land in Miami at 10:30 am. Depart from Miami at 2:25 pm and land in Port-Au-Prince at 4:20 pm. From their we head to La Digue to Children’s Lifeline.
We have had satan try and stop us from going on this trip a few different ways , and your prayers are much appreciated to keep us all healthy, the roads for travel good, and a smooth check in at the airport. We know that he does not want us to go and do God’s work, but we are rebuking him and praising our Savior for helping us and protecting us on this journey. Please remember us in your prayers for the next two weeks. Help us keep the devil at bay. Some specific requests are to pray that we are able to locate and secure land to build the home for Madam Dautilus while we are there. We are also very anxious to meet some people that may have some specific needs that we can help them out with, like the money to start a business and bring in income for their own families.
I will keep the blog updated as much as possible during our trip, with photos to follow when we get home. Thank you for all of your prayers and your help in getting us there!
