Ventures in Missions
The Japan Mission Team caught their morning flight out of LAX today. It was not without a little tension as there was some error in the ticketing that did not allow the team to check in online and was an issue when we arrived at the ticket counter at LAX. This error became an issue at the counter as they had to override the ticketing for each one of us though all were on the same conformation number.
So delayed we were at the ticket counter and getting to customs which was smooth but for one of our team members that had to have his bag looked at. This is not an issue typically but when you have a number of people ahead of you to have their bags checked and you are already delayed due to ticketing, this becomes an inconvenience that can test your patience. Then there is the added surprise that though we were at the new Delta terminal 2 we had to take a tram to catch our flight at the Bradley Terminal at the end of the airport. This adding more time to our present delay. No fears, the team was composed and we all got to the plane just at the tail of the boarding.
Traveling can have its moments and this was a minor one. Yet it will be a learning opportunity reminding us that we must always be ready, flexible and trusting the Lord. Continue to pray for us and keep watch as the team members share their experiences and thoughts on this blog.
