Venezuela ~ Day 1

Ben —  June 25, 2011 — 13 Comments

The day has finally come, Venezuela or bust!

I can’t even wait to meet the people we will be spending the next week with down south, and I’m sure the other 16 folks on our team feel the same way. This team of 17 has been put together (by none other than our Father), and we will soon be boarding our first flight to Miami.

then to Caracas

then to Barquisimeto.

Down below are time-stamped entries of the events of today – the first day of our short term mission trip to Venezuela with GlobalX.

Depending on many factors once we actually get down to Barquisimeto, this might be the format of which I give daily updates so I encourage you to comment often, as with each flight and each layover our team will need prayers and encouragement.
