Here we are back in Haiti. I can't believe it's been a year already. Our trip into the country yesterday was completely uneventful and smooth. The direct flight from BOS to PAP is fantastic so not only do we arrive at the airport with no other planes (so immigration, baggage claim and customs are much easier), but it gives us so much more time here in the lovely country.

We went to church with Dr. Morquette this morning and heard him preach. It was a lovely church in the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. It took us a while to get there, but it also gave us the opportunity to see how much the country is still in the process of getting back on it's feet. There are so many new houses, roads and shops, but there is still a long way to go.
The team pitching in to jump-start the van
We have a smaller team this year, so we are planning to stick together and experience both medical and non-medical days. Tomorrow we start our first day of camp with the kids of King's Garden orphanage. We are all looking forward to spending time with them again. We stopped by this afternoon for church with them and a short message from Pastor Snell about faithfulness. Tuesday and Thursday we'll be travelling to the rural areas to do mobile clinics as a team.
Papa Don bringing the message
We're ready to go, albeit a bit tired, and we're all happy and healthy.
Please continue to pray for us that we'd remain healthy and rested to do the work we are here to do.
