Today is the day! Our small team, of about fifteen people, is leaving today. I am so excited to get to know and love on the people of Sri Lanka!!! We leave this evening on a flight to our layover in Dubai. The flight is approximately fourteen and a half hours. Our layover will be seven hours, but I have not decided if I will leave the airport for a couple hours to explore Dubai. When we arrive in Dubai it will be night time, so I think we would only do a drive to see the landmarks. Considering I have been there before I will see how I feel after the flight. Then we will fly to Sri Lanka! This flight will be easy. It is only about four and a half hours. That is less that a third of the time the first flight took. Following is a link that mentions the shelter and similar stories of the people we will be helping.
Thank you for following my Mission trip adventure with me! Also, thanks to everyone who has helped make this trip possible!
