Vision Trip Day 1

Michael & Erin in Trinidad

Day 1
It was a long day. We got up at 3:30 AM, after getting to bed around 10:00 the night before, got to the airport, and flew to Miami at 7:00. After a short layover, we flew to Trinidad, a small island off Venezuela. They made everyone go through imigration & customs, even if, like us, they were getting a connecting flight. So we decided to go outside the airport, and enjoy the day, while we waited.

Lyla guarded our bags while we walked around. No, just kidding! It was a beautiful day in Trinidad: sunny, low to mid 80's, a nice breeze, and surrounded by beautiful flowers & palm trees.

We were hungry from only snacking all day, so we went to the local food court, and had "doubles," a Trinidadian favorite originating from the Indian immigrants. They were quite delicious. To wash it down, we had a pear-flavored soda pop. After a nice evening together we took our final flight to Suriname.

God helped us out tremendously with the baby. She didn't sleep much during the whole 20 hours of traveling, but she hardly fussed at all the whole trip. She didn't seem to mind the take-offs and landings. She was happy & playful. That made the trip so much easier. Also, we had very few difficulties with immigration & customs & finding our way from place to place.

Bro. Peter picked us up at the airport, and after a 45 min. drive we finally got to our apartment & to bed about 1:30 AM.

Thank you so much for your prayers.
