We'll try again tomorrow...

Today we were supposed to leave Haiti for Boston, but things didn't go as planned.  An altercation on the plane escalated and some unruly passangers had to be removed by security after making verbal threats to the flight attendants.  Then after that dust settled, the flight computer had to be rebooted so the pilots shut down the engines and restarted the plane.  Finally after 3 hours we were taxiing out to the runway when we were stopped because flight control informed the crew that they had now passed the point where they would be able to complete the flight to Boston and stay within their legal flight time allotment.  So we stopped on the tarmac for them to figure out a solution.  After another hour or so, they cancelled the flight and took us all off the plane and we went back to the ticket counter where we joined the chaos of trying to reclaim our luggage.

I guess we're getting off the plane

What do we do now?

Patience in practice

The team was in great spirits the whole time…playing word games, passing out candy and chatting it up with our fellow travelers.  The laughter was welcome in such a stressful situation.  Dr. Morquette came to our rescue and carried us back to his home where a delicious meal was waiting for us.

We are so thankful for all the prayers on our behalf during this stressful day.

We'll try again tomorrow...
