I begin my journey to Les Cayes, Haiti in less than four days. I’m very mixed with emotion. I have a lot of excitement built up, and I also have a lot of nervous feelings about it. Either way it is an amazing experience I have been offered. I’m so blessed to be able to have the opportunity to get to help people in the way I will be. This experience will be life changing. Although I am beginning to be hesitant and nervous, (which is very unlike me) I believe it is simply because I don’t have any idea what to expect. However, I am going into this with a completely open mind, and positive attitude.
For those of you who do not know what we will be doing, we will be spending 8 days in Haiti. Throughout the course of this time, we will be working with children in sports camps, and putting on weddings for Haitian couples that cannot afford to get married. I get the amazing privilege to be a photographer during these weddings. What an amazing opportunity to capture love through a lens. I’m extremely excited.
We will be leaving Chicago, O’Hare airport Friday, June 28th.
Our flight leaves at 4:15pm. We will arrive in Miami around 8:30pm, and spend a night there.
Saturday, June 29th we will leave Miami at 10:00am, and arrive in Port Au Prince, Haiti at 12:05pm.
We then have a five hour drive to Les Cayes, Haiti after our flight.
I’m very excited to start blogging about my adventure, and all of the stories I will have to tell. I know this is going to be such a moving and life changing trip, and I’m very blessed with the opportunity. God couldn’t have chosen a better time, nor could He have chosen a better group of people to allow me to go with. I still have not met everyone that will be going with us, so I’m very excited for the new friendships. I am not completely sure what the situation is like as far as internet connection but I’m told we have time before bed to write and blog so I will try to upload pictures and blog entries as much as I can.
This is what the weather will look like the first couple of days we will be there!
Please keep our team in your thoughts and prayers. We are all very excited and hoping to get something completely wonderful out of this trip. It is going to be life-changing and I cannot wait to share it with all of you!
So much love to you all,
Keeley Renee Knie
