While mission trips are very tiring, physically and mentally, they are so much fun. A special part of the fun is returning to places you have been several times before and renewing friendships from previous years.
Haiti holds a special place in Will's heart. He leaves today for his 3rd trip to Mare Rouge, Haiti. He is going with a group from our church in Mississippi. His bags are loaded down with gifts for his buddies down there and the dear lady who hosts them for a week. Can't wait to hear all about his adventures and for him to see & relate to us how the Lord worked during the time there.
James drove down to the airport with us and dropped Will and I off at the door. From when we got out of the car, checked in, and he got completely through security it was about 10 minutes ~ that's nothing compared to our other international flights. I was really expecting security to take a couple of hours cause there is usually a long line ~ I am very thankful that was not the case today. I could clearly see him go through the checkpoints, so I knew when he got through.
Thankful for ~
easy check in and security clearance
