We're off...

Well, today's the big day! :)

Bags are packed (so far the zippers haven't burst, but they're close) and we're heading to the airport shortly. The crew from Yarmouth should be leaving any time, and we'll connect with them at Halifax airport late this morning for the flight to Montreal. We'll link up with Jim there and all fly to Port-au-Prince Haiti tomorrow morning.

Please keep us in your prayers as we travel. Thank you to all those who have helped make this trip possible - through prayer, financial contribution, donations of shoes and clothing, support to take the time off from work, and best wishes or encouragement. All have been appreciated!

We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we arrive safely - likely late Tuesday evening.


  1. Well, everyone made it to Halifax okay. Our flight to Montreal has been delayed - so far by 4 hours. Glad we don't connect through til to Haiti til Tuesday morning - no big deal being delayed today at least. :)

  2. Praying that all will go well and smooth.

    Jackie, Troy and family.

  3. Hi Newells Family, I will be monitoring your blog daily and know you are in my prayers nightly. God bless you all and safe passage to Haiti

  4. Hopefully you're in Montreal by now (9:45 AST). We'll keep watching the blog and keep praying.

    Love to all,
    - Russell & Janet

  5. We pray that all is going well and the Lord is keeping you and your family safe.

    Heather & Rod

  6. Glad to hear you are safely there...wish we were too. We will be watching for updates and praying for you all.
    Love from both of us
    Sandra & Dickie
