Saint Vincent team arrives

Computer difficulties at United Airlines kept the team from reaching their final destination on time, but they have finally made it, according to an e-mail from YFC this morning.

The team spend the night on Wednesday in San Juan, Puerto Rico because delays kept them from making their connection to St. Vincent. United took care of them, however, and they made it to St. Vincent the next evening.

Much of their equipment has been delayed, which was expected, so YFC is helping to secure some other gear for them until theirs shows up. They are hopeful that the next few flights from San Juan will bring everything over.

Singapore reports safe arrival

A call from Carolyn at 11:30am Central time informs us that the Singapore team has touched down safely and met their contacts. They need to chase down one piece of missing equipment, but otherwise all is well!

St. Vincent departs

The Saint Vincent team has successfully checked in and cleared security for the first flight on their three-leg journey to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. We'll post information on their progress as we're made aware.

Honduras and Singapore teams checked in

The Honduras team checked in very early this morning without a hitch! Team leader Willie Moon has called to let us know that the team has made it safely to Houston, where they will board the second and last leg of their journey to San Pedro Sula.

Later in the morning, the Singapore team also successfully checked in. Team Leader Carolyn Ballinger has called from Chicago to report that they have made their connection there as well, which means they've managed to avoid the weather delays that have impacted many flights through Chicago.

Praise God that these two teams are underway! The Saint Vincent team will be heading to a hotel near the airport tonight as they have an early checkin tomorrow.
