One of the key words on any short term trip experience is FLEXIBILITY! Things don’t always go as planned, but God’s goodness is unchanging. Our opportunities to trust Him and bring glory to Him don’t begin when we arrive to our destination, but rather in every step of obedience we take. In fact, it is how we handle the obstacles in our path that often displays our love for Him and others more so than when everything goes smoothly!
The team arrived safely in Paris this morning only to be told that the tickets they were given in the US on a partner airline were not valid. They will have to spend another night in Paris before they can get on a flight that will accommodate the whole team tomorrow to Warsaw.
This is obviously frustrating. However, they are in good spirits and will get to enjoy an afternoon in Paris! We are grateful for experienced and well-trained leaders that are taking care of the team and handing these obstacles with grace. We are also taking comfort in knowing that none of this surprises God and His plans are perfect. We are praising Him for their safety and provision and trusting that He will be glorified in this.
Please pray that they would continue to have peace and joy as they make the best of this challenge!
“The steps of a man are established by theLord, when he delights in his way”
