It’s been a very long day but a good day. We were up around 6 this morning and were able to wait until after the severe storm in Eldridge passed before we got in the car to go to church. Adam’s dad and brother came and got us so the tee didn’t have to leave a car at the church all week. We arrived at 7pm and were on our way by 7:30am. We had a fine trip on the bus and made one stop at a rest stop. The airport was smooth sailing. We checked in and got through security and had two full hours before our flight. The flight was a little rough but overall it was fine. By the time we reached altitude it was time to come back down. We took another bus to the hotel and then got our rooms. We walked to a place called Montys for dinner which was awesome pizza and salads.
Right after dinner we had worship and a sermon which was very cool. The man preaching had an amazing story of surviving 7 strokes in one day. He talked about how the Lord was with his through that and how God was a provider, healer, righteous, etc. The one point that stood out to me is that peace is not the absence of struggle. Peace is calm in the midst of trouble. There were some awesome points made about what we will experience this week.
We got to meet our cord group and tomorrow we will be in Brookyn at a prayer station. We were also told that Brooklyn Tabernacle prays for their Borough 24/7 and she told us we will see he fruit of that tomorrow. We got to pray with one another about our fears for the week.
We are very tired and it’s been a long day of travel so we are going to get some rest so we can be ready in the morning. On a funny note, I went into the bathroom at the hotel and this is what I saw.
I had to laugh because I had never seen anything like it. I know today’s report hasn’t been very exciting but it’s mostly a travel day. If you have questions feel free to ask and I will try to address them.
