Headed home . . .

Took a trip to the Far West today to see what is happening in La Bay. We were also supposed to go to Beuchamp, but a tire in the tap-tap gave out. So we changed tires and headed back to the mission early. I was able to get some soil samples to bring back to Chris. If he can analyze them at MSU, we should be able to give the missionaries here a better idea how to work their land. Then they, in turn, can help the people in their communities.

We leave the mission in about ten hours - at 4 AM. Then it is a tap-tap ride to Port du Paix and a puddle jumper to Port au Prince. From there we fly to Miami, and then on to Detroit. I might make it home to my bed about twenty hours after we begin. Should be a long day.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Thank you for all you did and continue to do. Lord Bless.
Tell Nathan we'll be waiting for his call & ready to pick him up - at what ever time in the night or early morning hours.

Are you able to get soil samples through customs?

I loved reading your updates and seeing the pictures. I will be praying for your (and the groups) safe return home tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing all of you again on Sunday. And Tracy will continue to be in our prayers.

That last comment was from Emily Bargen. (o: Not sure why it says anonymous - but that's okay.
