Christmas came early...

...or Terry and Lori's package came really late. Yesterday we got our first package here. It's amazing how excited we got over this shoebox of goodies, especially given that Haiti is only 700 miles from the Florida coast. Equally amazing was the postmark on the package: August 9th. Four months to go 700 miles!
Special treats: most of these things are available here, but they're beyond what we can afford on our MCC budget (which I might add, is still waaay more than the average Haitian's disposable income). We were so excited for trail mix that we ate it for dessert.

I'm happy too, + jealous that the one Abe and I sent didn't get to be your First Package Photo Feature.
