I'll fly away.

Right now, this blog is quiet. Our friends and family don't know yet that we're seriously considering a move to Haiti to serve. Until we have made our final decision and announced the good news to everyone, here is my place to spill.
What I Learned Today:

There are ministry airlines that make it their business to transport missionaries, missionary mail, and supplies.

missionaryflights.org
-flies to Port-au-Prince, Haiti on Thursdays from Fort Pierce, Florida
-will carry your items for $1.50 per pound
-fly to W Palm Beach or Orlando, then Hertz one-way rental car
-$430 round trip, $215 one way

agapeflights.com
-flies to Port-au-Prince, Haiti at dawn on Wednesdays
-out of Venice, Florida

It is only 156 miles from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (to the other side of the same island) to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. That is the same distance between Dallas and Abilene.

It is only 710 miles from Miami, Florida to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. That is the same distance between Dallas and Atlanta.

It is only 1806 miles from Dallas, Texas to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. That is nearly the same distance between Dallas and either Seattle or Vancouver.

Haiti is at the same time at Dallas.

The airport in Port-au-Prince is called Mais Gate and goes by the code PAP.
