No internet. That is the story of Haiti: Day 5. We know this because we were actually able to speak to John by cell phone for about 10 minutes tonight! He called out using one of the missionary's phones. It was great to hear his voice. He told us that the internet has been down all day and they're hoping it is restored soon. Their day was full with morning classes and then travel to another OMS campus and fellowship with the missionaries. He also got to speak in the student chapel.
Since we don't have a picture from John's day in Haiti, I thought I would upload a portion of a satellite image from Google Maps to show exactly where John is. I've thought today what missionaries from 50 years ago...even 25-30 years ago...would've thought if they would've had internet and cell phones for communication with their family in the states. One day without internet wouldn't have seemed so bad. Perspective. Sometimes it's good to "zoom out" so you can see more clearly.
We are so thankful for God's work in Haiti and the opportunity to share in it for a few days. Thank you for your prayers....Trina
