On this final day, we took time to pray for the water purification plant, the vocational school, the gym, the Lighthouse school itself, the bus (and the places it brings people to), future teams, each other and the items being donated.

We are grateful for the hospitality of the Lighthouse staff. They took the 3 hour drive to drop us off at the airport and many said their good-byes. We hope to see them again.

On Friday, March 17, approx. 1:15 am, we all arrived with all our checked bags in hand, greeted by loved ones. Similar to the Apollo 13 sign off:  Toronto, we’re at stable one. The crew is secure. This is CE-DR 2023 signing off.
