Great news every one I have an official date of departure, it’s going to be November 27th!
I did a lot of searching to find the best deals so that less money would go towards the plane pricing and more would go toward the kids and the amount of time I can stay in Haiti!
Originally American Airlines was the best price but me being persistent I kept searching and found that Spirit was the best price. Although AA offered 1 free checked bag the cost of just the flight was way too high. When looking in to Spirit I had to pay for every bag but it still brought the price cheaper than AA.
At first I was a little discourage because it said I had to pay for the carry on $20! yikes. Good news was you can have a “personal bag” which is free, it just has to fit under you seat. A carry on would be what goes over head 🙂 duh, silly me. For my personal bag I’ll just be bringing my camera for documenting of course, my laptop for movies since I have about an 11 hour lay over! I’m also going to bring maybe a tooth-brush and extra clothes just in case.
I purchased 2 checked bags ahead of time to save some money which was around $60 relatively not bad. One bag or half of it is going to be for my stuff IE: clothes, hygiene stuff. The other Half of the bag and secondary bag will be stuff for the kids/ orphanage supplies.
I’m super excited to leave now that I have a date and it think I’ll be able to get some cool footage and fun footage in the air port… probably from losing my mind waiting for ever for the next flight.
I actually really enjoy flying I’ve been over sea’s a few times. I must say I feel bad for people who have trouble flying, I find it invigorating. I’ve even thought about becoming a flight attendant at one point, who knows maybe I still will for a year or two. Who can turn up cheap flights right?
So enough about the departure, Emily’s mom and I have been looking into making/ creating new merchandise. I was thinking about doing car magnets and Heather (Em’s mom) was thinking about rubber/Silicone bracelets. I went ahead and did a bit of research and made some tester items, I ordered 1 Bracelet and a magnet with 2 different sets of magnet looks.
I’ll keep every one up to date on Facebook and here let me know what you think if you have any suggestions or have any contacts for merchandise just shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Mwen paka tann pou mwen vin Ayiti!
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
– Matthew 6:26
If God takes care of the birds and flowers, how much more will He take care of you if you will just trust Him. Instead of looking at your problems, set your eyes onHim and don’t let the cares of the world drag you down.
