At times it has seemed that the work is progressing slowly, but we are making progress on the foundation of the home we are building. Today we continued preparing for the foundation pour by cutting rebar to length and cutting wire that will be used to tie the rebar cages and wire mesh and foam panels together.

The first Haiti team checked in for the first leg of their flight at KCI around 7:30 this morning. We will fly to Dallas, then Miami, then Santiago, Dominican Republic. There we will be met by Kids Alive staff, and we will spend the night in the DR. Tomorrow (Sat), we will travel by bus to Cap Haitien, Haiti.
