I've rarely ever seen a street sign in Haiti, and I've yet to see a map with Ti Rivier pinpointed.
So where in the world is this little village?
100 miles from Port-au-Prince
40 minutes SW of Les Cayes and 10.3 miles as the crow flies from Shane Shaw's house :)
30 minutes East by SE of Port Salut, 6 miles, again, as the crow flies, yet it would take you all morning, day and into the night to make that short little jaunt.
You can fly from American to Port and catch a little island hopper to Cayes, or you make make the trip over land from the capital and about 5-6 hours later, you'll have arrived at the doorstep of Pierre Jabouin.
We'll be looking into renting a couple of rooms from him. He has a vision to start up a little radio station in Ti. Guess what he wants to do? Spread the Gospel in all 4 languages. :)
GPS coords? 18° 5'35.05"N, 73°49'53.16"W give or take a few hundred feet.
We'll be trying to check emails: firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll try to update this blog as often as the Lord allows.
We can receive mail from a missionary mail service called Agape Flights. They fly a plane into Cayes and from there we can pick up any packages.
Here is the address:
Daniel and/or Kari Elliott
c/o Agape Flights CAY 26476
100 Airport Avenue
Venice, FL 34285
I'll have a Haiti cell phone which we'll be able to receive calls on. Calling out is a little more difficult, because we have to get to town to add minutes in a pay-as-you-go fashion.
