Since I’ll be missing Selfie Sunday with the kids, we made up for it this evening as I prepared to leave them on the trip of my lifetime!
Yep guys…in less than 3 hours I will officially be on my way to Mizak, Haiti!! I know I know, I should be sleeping but I’m just too darn excited. When I am nervous anxious or excited, eating and sleeping are out of the equation. And to be honest, I’m not quite sure if I’m nervous, anxious or excited! Maybe a mixture of the three.
Ever since I can remember, God has been calling me to Haiti. I would sit in church and I could hear that still small voice telling me to go, but of course, as with everything else in my life I made excuses and never made the trip there.
No more excuses!!!! In just a little while I am stuffing the car with my suitcases that consist of Creole Bibles, steril birthing kits, handmade pillow case sundresses, glasses, and some newborn onsies. I know I know I know God is calling me to go and I am finally ready to say Here am I Lord, send me!
My carry on bag has enough clothes for 7 days. Instead of wearing skirts and dresses as we had originally planned, we are wearing scrub pants to cover our legs since there is an outbreak of the chickengunya disease. All of our clothes have been sprayed heavily with bug repellant and we even covered them with prayers! I have enough bananas and pony tail holders for all of Haiti, and the rest of the carry on has candy, glow Sticks and toys for the kids….that my kids personally picked out and bought!!! (Sigh♡)
My backpack has three cameras, a journal, my Bible, ear buds, my passport (that is awaiting it’s first stamp!!!!), and The Alchemist (book I can’t put down).
I said my goodbyes…made amends with some people I’ve been upset with…kissed and hugged my babies. ..even got tons of text messages and Facebook messages with friends saying they are praying for me and wishing luck on my trip of a lifetime. I think I am just about ready.
I want to share this with you….it is from my cousins Facebook status today.
Speechless…..that left me speechless!
Ok guys, I am one hour away from departure!!
Until next time….pray for me!
See you soon!!!
