Gayle reports: I left Port au Prince this morning at 6 a.m. and was transferred to a second bus at 8 a.m. We drove to the border of the Dominican Republic where we spent 4 hours waiting to be cleared by the Haitian authorities. We then began our long eight-hour trip across the Dominican landscape. Everybody on the bus was exhausted and speechless. The start contrast between the two worlds was like something out of a movie. My heart is shattered with grief but the smiles of the few were worth it all, knowing that many will be able to recover from their surgeries and injuries with little to no pain or infection. I have been reflecting on what all happened in my life in the last three weeks that put me in contact with so many people who cared for those they have never met, nor will they. But God’s plan was made perfect through conclusions in a few days; after I have had time to process it all. What I do know is that God is mighty to save and that His plan is perfect. More on this later.
I am in the Dominican in a safe house with great people I will try to fly home tomorrow, but there are so many people trying to get home. We will see what happens, if I don’t get out tomorrow. I will be able to spend more time reflecting and then home on Sunday.
