Day 8 | Logan Gibson
Hi Mom, Dad, Laura, Tiera, and Bethany! I miss you all and can’t wait to see you in a week! As you can tell, we made it safely to Haiti! I started a countdown for this trip over 7 months ago and I am so excited that it has finally arrived! The last two days of travel have been long, but we were blessed with great weather and smooth flights today into Haiti. During our two hour drive to the compound, I just kept thinking of how much it reminded me of our trips to Tecate, Mexico. Mom, you would not have enjoyed the ride up the mountain, but I think you would have a better appreciation for my driving if you were here ☺ We were able to meet all the BHM staff today and I am looking forward to working with everyone this week. We had a fantastic dinner tonight, and I think we will definitely all be well fed this week. After dinner, we discussed our VBS lessons, crafts, and games which I know are going to be amazing! Tomorrow, I am on the church crew and will be making the one hour and 45 minute trek up the mountain in the dump truck. CAN’T WAIT! I have braided a lot of hair over the past two days and am foreseeing that I will be doing many more braids over the next week. Our day is starting very early tomorrow, so I am going to shower and get some rest! Love you all! Continue to keep us all in your prayers!
