7 days & blessings...

Wow. A week from now and I'll be on my way to Haiti. Actually I think that at this time exactly I will be flying to the Dominican Republic, meeting up with the rest of the team there, and then continuing on for another 6 hours by bus to Port au Prince. I actually don't have the travel details yet but think that this is the plan. I have been to the D.R. before but under very different circumstances; with the ship years ago for an outreach. I was a child in school at the time.


7 days to go. Lots to do. Right now my bed is covered with things to pack for the trip. Some clothes, stethoscope, gauze, bandages, analgesics, flashlight, camera, sleeping bag, etc. Yes, I need to pack.

God has been very good. I have been blessed by friends with contributions towards my trip. Also a lady in my church stopped by today with some excellent wound care supplies. I looked a few things I was unfamiliar with online and realized how valuable these supplies are. One of the types of dressings I received is probably worth about 120 Euros! Thank you. And I found out today that a friend of mine - a doctor from the UK - will be on my team on the 8th for 2 weeks. And my good friend Luzanne who worked with me in Sierra Leone for 6 months is hopefully coming out on the 15th for a few weeks. What a reunion that will be. It will be great to have some people I know on the team- if not for some emotional support!

Let the packing continue...
