2007 Haiti Mission Trip

23 Feb-3 March 2007
we all gathered at the church at 10 pm on 22 Feb, left the church at 12 midnight and drove to Nashville (3 hr drive)
flight left at 6am (we were early so we ate biscuits provided by Cotton and Evelyn)
from Nashville to Miami then to Haiti (no big delays)
got there, met at the airport by Bill, Jim and Corey then to Bill and Martha's house for lunch which was wonderful. Then we went to unpack for our 2 nights stay at the mission.
Saturday we went shopping. Sunday up early and on the truck to drive 4 hrs from Petionville through Port-au-Prince and on to Miragoane where we got to get on the boat for a 3 hr cruise on to Ile de la Gonave where the real work begin next few days it was WORK WORK WORK WORK (see pictures below) oh yeah and more work (oh and some play time at the beach to wash the days work dust off). on Thursday we had to be on the boat to leave at 5 am, so up early (packed the night before) and another lovely 3 hr cruise with 4 hr truck ride and back to campus to go out to eat that night, Friday we went to the Baptist Mission in Kenscoff and Saturday evening we flew out and arrive in Nashville late at night with only about 1/3 of our luggage (rest was still in Miami)we arrive home around 4 am on Sunday morning and was at church by 10 am (not sure where the sleep came in there)
