We arrived back safely and with no unexpected travel kinks on Friday the first of January. It doesn't feel all that hot here, but we well know what it feels like, so it is no surprise. It is also 'winter' here and the temperatures are cooler and the humidity is lower. It is very dry and will continue to be until the rainy season starts in March.
We were well welcomed! It is great to see all of our friends again.
Yesterday was church and it started at 7:00 a.m.! Sunday School is at 6! We were out of church at 10:30......Somehow it did not seem that long except that our backs and hips were achy for about the last hour from sitting on a wooden bench.
We haven't made it to the beach yet. Sunday afternoon would be the usual time to go, but we went to the airport instead to pick up one of the speakers for the Pastor's Conference which started today.
Pastors from all around the area attend - usually there would be 300-400 for the four day conference. The speakers come from North America. Tomorrow, we pick up two more speakers from the airport. We are fast getting reacquainted with the trek from here to Port au Prince! It gives us time to get reacquainted with Ronald who is our driver and Haitian team host.
