We have arrived safely!
After spending the night at the beautiful Santiago Mission House, the team loaded our luggage into one bus and ourselves into another and took a three-hour bus ride to the Haitian border. We filled out forms for leaving the Dominican Republic and other forms for entering Haiti, and then we crossed the border and drove just a few minutes to our beautiful project site in Ouanaminthe, Haiti.
We have spent the afternoon setting up our tents and kitchen as well as meeting some of the kids who live nearby. As Hannah Monroe said, “When we got to Ouanaminthe, we suddenly had an entourage of excited kids whose eyes light up like fireworks when we wave at them!”
We will spend the next couple days getting settled in and setting up for our work project.
It’s exciting to finally be at our project site, and we look forward to getting to work!
