We made it. It was an exhausting nearly 24 hr journey but the meeting was joyous! David and Julie asked me to mail you (they are at the Consulate and I stayed behind) and let you know so that you can pass the word on. Our last leg of the journey from Miami to Port au Prince was delayed twice and landed in 35 mph winds that made our tummies roll. David has a story to share but I will leave that for him.I will continue to provide updates as they are made available, including the information on their return flight status Wednesday night. Continue to pray for their stay, as Port au Prince isn't the safest city, and for a quick and easy flight home.
Walking into this home and having Yolanta and Katie greet their parents is something I will never forget. It was love personified.
As far as I know everything is as scheduled for Wed but if it should change we'll let you know. No cell service here but I expect David and/or Julie to get on this computer later.
Take care and thanks for spreading the word.
