The Promised Land. posted by Andrew
Well, we made it. I am now sitting in our hotel room after 3 plane rides (15hours flight time), 1 helicopter ride, a short car ride to the hotel, and 36 hours straight of no sleep. Needless to say we are all exhausted after fighting with our enormous amount of luggage through several airports and countries. It is really hot here, but we are luckily in one of the few places with air conditioning. Osseh and Quami have been incredibly helpful getting us from the airport to our room.
The need here is already overwhelming. It is going to be incredibly difficult to keep focused on what we are here for and not exhaust our resources on the needs that are all around. We may get to see the kids at the center tomorrow and deliver all of the donations. We are heading out to eat now so i will try to post more later.
