Really short post today straight out of my Haiti journal. It was my first time to land in Port au Prince this past January. As we descended through a very overcast, gray sky, I caught my first glance of this island. Strangely, I wasn’t surprised at what I saw. It could have been one of several countries I’ve traveled through. What caught me off guard was the song that came on loudspeakers as we taxied to the terminal.

An instrumental version of Owl City’s Fire Flies. Somehow, looking out on the clouded, gray landscape, with rain drizzling down the window, it just wasn’t what I expected. But then again, God always does that in some way, doesn’t he? The entire week became a continual “This is what I have for you”…even though I never expected it.
