Thank you for your prayers for our recent trip to Port au Prince, Haiti. God certainly blessed this joint effort between Piney Grove Baptist Church in Samson, Alabama, and St. Andrew Baptist Church in Panama City, Florida. Our team worked alongside of SCORE International Missions, a worldwide mission organization with a presence in Haiti.

I want to encourage you to read the team member testimonies that will be posted to the blog over the coming days, and you can still access our field updates from the "Blog Archive" link on the right hand side of the page. Thank you again for your prayers!

Home Again...Well, Nearly!

I knew we were in trouble when the pilot of the Boeing 767 said we were returning to the gate with mechanical issues. Over an hour later we finally left Port au Prince, but unfortunately our time delay caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tallahassee. With no other flights available that would take us to the panhandle, the airline gave us a hotel and meal voucher and scheduled us for the first flight to Tallahassee in the morning. We have an amazing team, however, and everyone is still in great spirits. We enjoyed an unexpected meal together tonight, and praised God for little blessings like a running shower, a toilet that flushed, and safe water straight from the tap. Many thanks to Lynn Briley who was already north of Blountstown in route to pick up our team when he got the word that we would not make it today. Please pray for our safe and successful travel in the morning!
