Day 1 in the Congo

After 43 hours of travel, Nic and I arrived at the airport in Kinshasa and experienced the chaos that happens quite often in third world airports. Yes, we were the only Americans, and yes, we do not speak french. SO as you can imagine, it was very interesting. Thank the Lord that Hope International arranged for a liason and driver to get us to our hotel safely.
We arrived at the Hope D.R.C (Democratic Republic of the Congo) office and met our team for the week. Emmanuel (our coordinator), Sarah (our translator), Longo (our security official) and Pierre (our driver). What an amazing group of people! They have been so gracious in serving for this production! None of this would be possible without them.
We had a great meal of chicken and plantains at a local resteraunt! With sprite and coke:)
We are excited to rest and begin filming tomorrow! Thank you for all of your prayers! Here are some photos from Day 1:
