Wow! In 29 days I will be on a plane to Haiti. I am so excited to see the children and get moved in at Grace Village. I have been busy packing my apartment, my classroom, saying good-byes, organizing things to bring to Haiti, getting my shots updated, and enjoying time with family and friends. My mind is full of things I need to get done and things I need to prepare for Haiti. It is an exciting, yet overwhelming time. Daily I pray that God will be my strength when I am weak. I am preparing for the unknown and need to ask Him for guidance and direction.
Many of you have asked what it will be like to live in Haiti. Right now, I don't know many details. I do know that I will live simply. I am looking forward to building relationships with people. I'm sure I will miss air conditioning, electricity, high-speed internet, laundry machines, refrigerators, and the convenience of grocery stores. I will be making many changes to my daily living. What a wonderful, exciting journey!
