Sorry I missed sending a post on T-1 day. Too many other details to think about. Still a few running around in my mind this morning. Now it is our Departure Day and our Double Dedication Day.
Yesterday, we loaded two of our vans with 13 bags of gifts for the Haiti mission. Plus many of us have gift items in our carry-ons, saving us from having to pay $25 for the 14th checked bag we would be allowed with 14 travelers. We hope none of the bags exceed the allowable size. We worked hard to achieve that.
Today, we and our mission will be dedicated at the 10 a.m. service at Memorial and at the 11 a.m. service at Sierra Grace. We will all gather at the William’s house for lunch before our departure to San Francisco to board our flight to Newark — then on to Haiti tomorrow!
We will continue to post to this blog when any form of communication allows us to do it. Please pray for all of us and for a successful mission.

Final Packing For The Trip

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

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.
