After 3+ hours we landed in Haiti in a little plane from Florida - the flight was smooth and the landing perfect. We could see looking down from above, the crumbled buildings and flattened metal and concrete mess covering the entire area. Trusting God to lead us to every person He has planned for us to meet and help, the Bishop and I step out with complete peace.
Serendipity! The very first person we meet is exactly who we are to meet! Amazingly he was right outside the Airport in the parking lot. The Bishop and his path had crossed many years ago in the same Bible School! And a simple phone number on a paper, jumps off the page, turns into real life and ministry friends come alive!
We spent a little time getting to know the Benete ministry family before loading up and taking off into Port Au Prince.
After some arrangements for a place to stay for us, and transportation for everyone is arranged. Our ride comes to take us from the airport - it's called a Tap Tap.
Our sleeping bags can be given to the Pastor to give to someone else in need. We will not be needing them.
Pastor Benete's wife is a sweetheart who speaks English and she shares a little about her life with me on the road.
And their baby girl Daisy sleeps in peace wrapped in my sweater while the wind rushes through the Tap Tap on the long ride.
We are here to be a blessing.... we know God's plans are at work for us!!
