Spending the night in the Miami Airport.

I knew that spending the night in the Miami airport would be tough. I didn't realize just how tough it would REALLY be. It was freezing, the floor is really hard, nothing is open, the tv's were blaring really loudly and could not be turned down and the cleaning people were yelling and talking in spanish. Not a lot of sleep for me. I have my diet coke now (caffinated) so that is helping!

Keep Nate in your prayers. He has not been feeling good since Friday. He took a couple of tylenol pm last night and slept on the hard floor but I know that was not good for him. Why do hotel rooms have to cost so much! :) we are keeping him medicated. Hard to say if its physical or spirtual so please pray against both!! :)

Our next flight leaves at 10:30am and we should arrive in Haiti at 12:30pm.

Kim, this laptop has been a LIFESAVER to me!! Thank you for letting me take it. I seriously do not know what I would have done without it last night. I watched the amazing race, and found some older shows from my past that I had fun watching!! WIFI was my best friend last night!!

They have a smoking area here in the middle of the airport that is actually an atrium outside. Its kind of cool when no one is smoking out there. We went out there this morning and I couldn't believe that I was actually outside. It was pretty nice. Cool but not winter cold.

I will write more later.

What a wonderful thing to have that laptop. I can see that it would be a lifesaver. I hope you both get a chance to catch up on some sleep and I've been praying all morning for Nate.

I will pray for Nate to feel better and for both of you to get enough sleep! It's tough when you're tired before you even get to Haiti! Hopefully the roosters will take a break for you to get some shut eye this week! Love you both!!! Can't wait to hear more updates as the week goes on!!!
