Day 1 - 2/18/12 - Our Arrival
We were excited to leave on our trip this morning. Thank you to Scott O'Donnell for taking us to the airport for our 1:00am flight. We are looking forward to a productive week. I am so thankful to all of you that gave of yourselves for this cause. We will keep you updated throughout the week and post frequent videos. Keep us in your prayers.
Upon arriving 10 hours later we had the chance to meet and eat with Danita Estrella prior to her short trip back to the US. We sat and listened to her testimony as well as her vision for the orphanage in 2012. She is in the process of building a 17,000 sq.ft. hospital/clinic which will be one of the best on the Island. It is amazing to think that just 13 years ago she started with 13 kids and $200 per month of financial support.
Before I left I found this little cross maze that Caleb's 5th grade class had in their collection jar. I promised Caleb that I would keep it with me for the entire trip to remind me why I am here and the fact that all of you made this such a special trip by contributing the way that you did.
