We started our day early, leaving Ft. Pierce, FL at 4 a.m. Our flights etc. were all on schedule today and we had good roads driving home from Omaha. Our team arrived home to Spencer, IA around 5 p.m. today, Friday.
We will all be processing this experience for a long while to come. We have seen, heard, tasted, smelled and felt Haiti and God's goodness and have been changed in the process. I have learned that the hardest thing for me about a trip like this is the culture shock of coming home. As we traveled home today, each of us was anticipating being back home by thinking of our families, our own beds, our own showers, what we might have for supper tonight (Pork chops and mashed potatoes, Pizza Ranch pizza, saltine crackers and Sprite, etc). Even with some inconveniences that were encountered, this entire experience was life changing. Seeing God work in such powerful ways gave each of us hope for Haiti.
There was no email service the last couple of days so...Back to Wed: We had the chance to visit the family who has a new house thanks, in part, to the guys of our team who helped tear down, then rebuild the house. We could see and feel the sense of hope that this family has because they no longer have to worry about their safety as they used to fear that their house would fall down right on top of them.
To Be Continued after a good night's sleep.
