Haiti Day 6 – Commencement

The word commencement means to begin, although we use it to title events that are endings…or seem like endings. As it turns out, these endings are launching places in our lives.

The first full day of our Haiti trip started early – 6:30 (which was a bit too early for me). I was tired upon arriving for the first time at the orphanage, and, quite frankly, pretty out of it; I wasn’t expecting any sort of lasting impression on the first day, especially since I was feeling this tired. Boy was …

On Our Way…

Here we are sitting in the airport awaiting our flight to Port-Au-Prince. We are pretty early so we don’t yet know how full the flight is or who will be on the flight. But, I will be totally surprised if our group of 11 is the only volunteer team on the flight. Haiti is THE destination for volunteers from North America....
