Surprised ya, didn't I?
Surprises me too.
My father-in-law went on numerous mission trips throughout the years, but it was Haiti that stole his heart. So his sons wanted to go on on a mission trip to Haiti in his honor.
They contacted the group he used to travel with, and whaddya know, they're going later this year.
Jason & his oldest brother are definitely going. The middle brother is trying to work things out. His 17-year-old nephew might go as well.
And so might I.
After much thought, consideration, and prayer I've decided that I will go as long as it won't hurt our family financially. The cost is roughly $1300 per person, and yes, you pay your own way.
We had already sat down & figured out that we could probably scrimp & save & reallocate some funds and pay for Jason to go without too much struggle.
But $1300 is tough to come up with in less than 6 months. Let alone $2600. So I told him I would only go if we could pay for mine out of extra money (bonuses, overtime, etc.) and that I wasn't taking any money away from bills or out of savings to cover it.
So Jason is definitely going. And I might be going as well. I guess we'll see...
As always, thanks for checking in!
