Haiti Update!

by Sandi on March 25, 2011

For those of you following the Haiti trip, here’s a quick update although the communication is very short text messages daily & not many details.

After a delay getting out of Denver there was a concern that they would miss their connection in Texas but fortunately they held the plane for them and they got into Miami on Tuesday night as planned.  Spent the night and made it to Haiti on Wednesday morning.  They were able to get the trucks rented, arrived at theh orphanage in Fedja, had dinner and visited.  They set plans for working the basketball camp, dental clinic and building the security wall then headed back Thursday morning to get started.

This afternoon I got a text from Blake, our pastor stating that the dental clinic was going awesome their first day.  They saw 65 kids at the orphanage, pulled over 20 teeth and did about a dozen fillings.  He said “Very rough circumstances and a hard experience to watch.  Extremely brave kids.  Heart-breaking experience, but our team is loving these people the best we can . . . “

More updates as I get them & thanks for all the well wishes and prayers for the group!

Thank you for this update-it’s a great way for us to keep the trip in prayer. What a great service that blesses so many people with more than anyone could ask or expect. Oh yeah, isn’t that the way God works? “Abundantly more than we can ask or think”! You are blessed to be a blessing!
