Erin In Haiti – Welcome To Haiti

Mike blogging for Erin.

MTW's team #2 safely in Haiti.

Beautiful young ladies.

What 7.0 looks like.

Erin has been joined in Port au Prince (PAP), Haiti by MTW’s Disaster Response team #2. At the last minute the team was able to change their plans and fly directly into PAP and save five hours of drive time. This is great news as it will give Erin and Dan Jenny more time to orient team #2 and get them set up in the tent city located at the Quisqueya School…their home for the next week.

The team was picked up at the airport in a bus, which promptly broke down. They were then transported into town in the back of a pickup truck, in two trips. Welcome to Haiti.

The plan is for Erin and Dan to get the team settled into camp and then get them a tour of the city, the refugee camps and their future work site. They will then prepare everything they need to start a medical clinic early Wednesday. Most of the team is running on adrenalin right now as many of them took redeye flights into Miami Monday morning and then the 3:00am flight Tuesday into Haiti.

Other medical entities are continuing to report increased medical concerns including H1N1, dengue and diarrhea.

Prayer needs: 1) Pray that every member of MTW’s Disaster Response team demonstrates the love and mercy of God to each other. 2) Pray for energy and good health for everyone. 3) Pray for Erin’s endurance as she begins her second week in Haiti.
