Final Packing For The Trip

The Haiti Team gathers Saturday evening to finalize the packing for the trip.


By Diane
Greetings from Clovis. Yes, we are still here. It’s T-2 days and this is still a test to see how the blog works.
Our biggest challenge now seems to be to get everything packed. We thought we had made good progress on packing all the gifts last Saturday but it turned out that some of the bags were too big for airline regulations. So now we’re looking for bags that are big enough to be worthwhile, yet not too big to go for the regular rate. Well, that’s all for now. Back to packing.

Some Blog Instructions

Some tips on viewing this blog…

Select Categories to the right to view only posts in a category. If you select “All Categories”, you will see all posts in categories below that. If there are any posts in a category not below (and indented) the “All Categories” category, they will not show. To refresh and see ALL posts, click Reset/Reload or the Home menu. Use of categories is optional. Posts may be assigned categories later.

Tags are similar. Tags will help the post be discoverable via Internet searches. They can be used to group posts that contain the same tags. Separate multiple tags with commas. You can use multi-word tags. Use them sparingly. Don’t tag common words.

Trip Preparations

By Ron Z

As one would expect, there’s a lot of prep involved with a big trip like this. Even though I’m not going, I want to help. I spent of time getting solar cells, cables, and batteries together to go with the group just to help insure everyone can communicate with home by keeping their cell phones charged. I have had previous experience with that. That stuff will stay in Haiti.
Since I, personally, want to hear as much as I can from the group, and my wife, I set up this blog site for everyone to use. I hope it gets used. It will be permanent, central record of everyone’s experiences, thoughts, feelings, and info for others going to Haiti in the future. I’d like to see short posts, like tweets, and longer entries. And pictures.
There’s going to be a lot to do to keep things going at home and church with the absence of my wife and so many active members. -Ron
