Turning challenges into a serendipity

I got up at 4:30 a.m. to take Belinda and Katrina to the airport for their medical mission trip. You can read about it here. A few hours later I learned they were not going to be able to leave for Chicago on time because the air traffic was severely backed up there due to all the rain and flooding. They ended up getting out around 1 p.m. but the fun was just beginning.

When they got to Chicago they missed their plane because they were so late getting in from K.C. Not to be discouraged they started planning a way to meet Luke and Rachel Kendall who live in Chicago. Who could have guessed that my Mom and her new husband Randy Curtis would also get stranded there in Chicago. So the three couples got to eat out together. Randy had never met Rachel. 

Belinda and Katrina did get away today. They will be a day later than anticipated and miss spending some time in Hong Kong which is always a favorite destination. Other than that they should be fine. My mom and Randy got out of Chicago at 10:00 p.m. tonight and plan to come see me tomorrow (Saturday). 

No one can ever accurately predict just what will happen in a mission trip but something always does. It was fortuitous that this one worked out in such a positive way. Romans 8:28 is still true, God works everything out for the good of those that love the LORD and are called according to His purpose.
