Trip number 12 was completed at 6 AM this morning after a very LOONG, but successful day. Saying goodbye to all our wonderful friends was, as always, very hard, especially for Bro. Rigo. The flight home was uneventful until we were almost to Atlanta. We were in a holding pattern due to bad weather in Atlanta, and we soon had to divert to Augusta, GA to refuel. When we made it back to Atlanta 2 hours late, we knew we had a problem for the rest of the trip. Our first concern was getting through immigration for Bro. Rigo. We are so thankful that God gave us favor and they gave him a one year permit to stay in the U.S. What an answer to prayer!!!! What a mighty God we serve!!! We raced to the gate where our flight to Roanoke had been delayed. It was still at the gate, but they had closed it and we were not able to board. Eventually we decided just to rent a car and drive the 450 miles home. Now comes the fun part..... tracing down 6 pieces of luggage!
Thank you all for your support and prayer during this trip. We see much progress, especially in the hearts of the pastors with whom we are working. On our last service with Bro. Misael, he said that even if we never came again, he could not remain the same. The pastors were all very moved by the example,love, and testimonies of our young women Our plan is for Bro. Geinrre, Bro. Misael, and perhaps 3 other pastors to be with us this fall for 2 months. some of them will join us for Fall Campground meeting, and others at the Brownsville meeting. We are excited for them to be able to see and experience first hand the spirit of the Body of Christ. Until next time, Dios le bendiga!
