Tanzania 2015 Trip

There's Nothing Like A Mission Trip- Tanzania 2015 Day One

Mari Beth Poor

I've always said there's nothing like a mission trip....and day one of our Tanzania 2015 has proved that statement once again. First, let me introduce you to the team:
Victoria Brake
Clayton Davie
Amanda Demauro
Meredith Meadows
Fred Miller
Mari Beth Poor
Danny Rausch
Jordan Robbins
Beth Shires
Zach Whiting
This crazy awesome team arrived at the Birmingham airport bright and early Wednesday morning and flew to New York where we had a layover just long enough to do some selfies in Times Square (we wanted to do a group selfie with Spiderman but we were going to have to PAY- who knew selfies could be lucrative and when did Spidey get greedy??...I digress- we love him anyway) and selfies with the Statue of Liberty. Now we are in Amsterdam discussing life, love and other mysteries. Laughter is all around even though we are crazy tired. A few things we have determined on day one:

- all international flights need to have first class seats and amenities all through the plane- let's just do away with coach seating
- if all flights can't have first class seating only, there should be ONLY window and aisle seats- no middle seats please.
- Zach needs his own reality show, and if you know him you KNOW you agree and would watch it!

Anyway, all is well, God is good, and we can't wait to get to Dar Es Salaam late this evening (I think it's Thursday- who knows at this point?) We love and miss you and thank you for praying for us.

 You have to look REALLY hard to see the Statue of Liberty but she is behind us!
