Going to Haiti!

Well, as most of you already know, I am on my way to Haiti for at least two months to help in an orphanage, Shiloh Childrens Home.  I am going with a lady (Mrs. Schmidt) and her daughter to rejoin Mr. Schmidt and the rest of their family in Haiti.  They are the founders of the orphanage.  More of that when I get a chance.
 
     Right now I am sitting in a hotel room near the Orlando International Airport (OIA), and just said goodbye to my family  about two hours ago.  We drove from our house in the great me tropolis of Pierson to Orlando this afternoon, after a furious-last-minute-big-time-rush-packing flurry.  When we got to the hotel, we helped Mrs. Schmidt weed through all the stuff- a great deal of which was first aid supplies- and then ate pizza down in the lobby.  This is going to be interesting, and I believe fun, but right now I'm a little worried about going through the airport. 
More coming tomorrow!
