On a Mission: Haiti/DR Day 1

There is so much to type but I have to get ready for church.  The orphanage has a chapel on site but we have been told we are traveling over the water to Haiti this morning for services.  🙂

This pictures probably won’t make much sense to you all but I will come back later and insert comments.  Thank you for praying for us over the last 6 months and for supporting us financially to make all of this happen.  We are more than blessed.

Enjoy the view:
