That particular verse from God was made real in a new way once we hit New York on Sunday. Our flight home was cancelled due to bad weather so we had to pay for a hotel for the night at our own expense because the airline said they could not control the weather. So that was the first test, then we arrived early the next morning to catch our flight home only to find out it was delayed by several hours. Then were told that it was approaching and then next thing we know it was cancelled. So we began the long process of trying to get home on another flight. Anyway, to make a long story short, the airline sent us to Atlanta and then home to Cleveland. The fist flight from New York to Atlanta was supposed to leave at 2 but after we boarded they found a dent in the cargo door so we sat in the plane until after 4 when they finally let us leave. Anyway, we got to Cleveland by 9 p.m. but our luggage did not make it so we are waiting for them to track it down. We do know it made it to New York.
All in all though this trip was the most fruitful we have had. We have learned many lessons from the Lord the main one being that our peace and joy do not depend on our circumstances or location or whether or not we have our luggage. He has been so faithful the whole time and we could sense His anointing and grace each time we got up to teach. We added up our time there and between us we taught over 44 hours in two weeks in Ukraine and around 25 in Romania. That is more than Wayne preaches in our church for a whole year. Add to that 3 or 4 counseling sessions each day and no wonder we are mentally tired. Thanks again for your support both financially and prayerfully.
*It is good to be home. We will try to post the pictures within the week so be sure to check back.
*Blessings to you all. Wayne and Sherry
