Day 1: Here we go!

The paper's been set, the stickers in place, and plans for our soccer goalposts set and ready to go! Our first couple of days have been a whirlwind of getting to know Haiti, the Morquettes, the orphans, and our fellow team members. Through bumpy car rides, delicious Haitian meals, and nightly team times, our team is starting to build friendships, and it's been a huge blessing and encouargement to learn pieces of each member's story. But, now that we've settled in, rested, and prepared as much as we can, it's go time!

Today will be our first day at the orphanage and the hospital. The VBS team has plans in place for soccer camp in the morning (led by Coach Tom), then crafts, singing, and a Bible story. And the hospital team? We're not really sure yet- we'll keep you updated! Flexibility is the word of the week, apparently. Anyways, for those of us who have not been to Haiti before, this morning is full of nervous excitement about the unknown (or maybe it's just me). It's been a constant reminder that, though we may never be fully prepared, God has a plan for us here and all we can do is trust in that. Excited to see what He has in store!
