Nokken Team # 3 Day 1 - Monday

Hello family, friends, and supporters! 

We have arrived in Haiti!!!  Yay!  Our team is comprised of people living in Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio, so we arrived on various flights at different times today, but we made it and so did all our luggage.  Hallelujah!  There were a few hiccups along the journey, but nothing too major, and we made it to Haiti to start our week of time in service to the Lord here.

Today was primarily a day of getting to know our team members and getting oriented at Healing Haiti.  We are so excited to be serving together and are grateful for the opportunity to get acquainted and enjoy some time together today at the Healing Haiti guest house.  We sorted out all the donations that came along with us (from many of you---THANK YOU!!).  We had a great meal together (see the picture) provided by the Healing Haiti staff.  Then, many in our group went and played soccer with some of the young men from the neighborhood.  It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed being with them and seeing them play some impressive soccer.  While others were playing, some in our group got to interact with some young kids and talk with others from the neighborhood.  What a blessing to interact with Haitians on our first day in Haiti!

Tomorrow, we’re looking forward to a day with the water truck, delivering water to the Cite Soleil. We’ll interact with Haitians and deliver fresh water at a number of different stops.  Come back tomorrow to hear how things go!

Sending much love to you all and gratitude for your support from Port au Prince, Haiti---
