Day 1

Burlington 2013 HANDS Team:

It is now 11:00 pm, and we’ve finally arrived safe and sound at home sweet home in the DR, after a long day of travel!  Our day started out very early, at about 2:30 am......

we arrived at TO airport around 4 am and found out that we had to switch flights, and our new flight didn’t leave until 10:10 am and then our next flight would leave from Miami at 7:20 pm.  It all started when Bill opened his mouth on the way there and said that he’d never had a trip to the DR without adventure on the way.....well we sure got our adventures alright!!  It was a good team bonding experience though.  Instead of arriving at the ministry center around 5 pm, we finally arrived at 11 pm!  When we got to the Santo Domingo airport, we got through immigrations and customs like a breeze, and found our luggage without incident!  Funny how the smoothest part of our trip happened in the foreign country.....When we got outside our van was waiting for us, and we met Victor (our translator) and Daniel, the driver.  Then we got our first experience of driving in the DR....you’ll hear more about that later.  Now it is time for bed, as we are very tired.  Thanks be to God for getting us all here safely!!

Sounds like things are going well.

I am sure there are some amazing stories and some highjinks:}

Still cool here in Owen Sound.

Praying you will have a fun weekend and you continue to be a blessing.
