For a variety of reasons the team did not physically meet together until 10AM in Miami at gate D2. The Richmond contingent started at 445 at the Richmond airport, and we also had two new teammates Sarah from the San Francisco Bay area and Amy from Washington DC area. We are also joined by Bob from Lake Gaston and Mike from Southern Maryland. We are fast making new friends, yet we are missing those that could not join us for one reason or another. And we are grateful for our families and loved ones holding down the fort at home so that we have this opportunity to serve. We are eager for the week to start.
