Haiti

Since the disaster in Haiti on Tuesday, it has been difficult to bury fears about going overseas! Of course, we are no less susceptible to natural disasters right here, but somehow the thought of being in a foreign country, a very poor country, and away from family makes it a little scarier sounding.

We have been following a blog by an MAF family from Chilliwack assigned in Haiti for a while now. It was through blog, early Wednesday morning, that I first heard about what was happening there.

A Meeting Is Ahead

We are excited to be able to meet people from the Canadian Mission Aviation Fellowship Headquarters this weekend. Their headquarters are located in Guelph, Ontario, so we have been communicating with them via email and phone for the past 11 months. Has it really been 11 months since we initially sent in our application? Wow. This meeting is exciting for us because we hope to find answers to some of our pressing questions in these early stages of this adventure. Many of them are logistical and would not change our minds about continuing with MAF, but we are still curious to know certain things. It would definitely help us to plan a few details over the next couple of months here at home, and help us to anticipate the next steps with MAF. Up until now, the application process has been fairly straight forward; filling out paperwork, having interviews and assessments. I have a feeling the next steps will require more faith. :)

Goodbye





Today we are saying good bye to our dog. We found him another home due to our possible future plans with Mission Aviation Fellowship and the fact that we will likely be too busy to properly care for him as we travel to support raise, receive additional training, and finish renovating our house to sell.
