Sunday was truly a blessed day… blessing of the dresses and clothes and the Mission Team at both services was terrific. “Clothes and stuff ” everywhere, to quote some of the children. Looks like we may have at least 18 suitcases full of the medications and clothes to wrestle through the airports. Our own clothes (scrubs and shirts) in our roller bags and backpacks. Chris’ blessing and the love pouring forth on us from everyone in the Sanctuary just continues the constant and selfless support we have been receiving all year from so many people from so many places.

Everyone on the team thanks all of you for helping us take your blessings on to the people of Haiti.

Hurricane Maria is predicted to impact northern Haiti perhaps tomorrow (Friday) but the weather predictions for Port au Prince where we will be is HOT (mid to high 90s) and with showers. Sounds like last year. I guess we will be having a lot of “conferences” with Neal in the pharmacy, as it has the only air conditioning.

We meet at the airport mid morning Saturday, and head to Port au Prince via Miami around noon. Keep us in your prayers and thanks for helping us return to the clinic at Haiti Outreach Ministry.
