Awesome start to our mission trip. At 9 a.m., approximately 20 family and friends began to gather and help our team load the forty 35 pound hockey bags full of donated supplies and clothing onto the school bus fabulously donated by Martin Transit :). With a single pitstop in Orangeville, 4 of our out-of-town additional team members were picked up and we excitedly continued onto the Toronto Airport with plenty of time to spare.
Sitting in the airport, I was reminded of the rare opportunity each of us have ahead of us to grow spiritually with such a wonderful group of people ranging from age 12 to ....an undisclosed age.
We send hugs to our many loved ones who helped make this trip possible in countless ways. We carry a special place in our hearts Kathryn and Ted who we know wanted to make this journey with us, and thank Anne who jumped in last minute and will be joining us on Sunday.

11:30pm (1:30am Canadian time): We have finally arrived after a long day! Everyone is tired but intact. Our travels were blessedly uneventful! Now we are settling into our rooms and thinking of sleep. More to come, so stay tuned.
