I want to be sure to thank God for the big things and the small things, because with God they're really ALL big things!!
At the Jackson airport, after driving around and around the parking garage, we finally found a spot near the back, but conveniently placed there was a luggage cart! Thanks, LORD!
Then on the flight from Jackson to Atlanta, the flight attendant gave Brooke a double portion of snacks, because she was wearing a Texas Rangers shirt! ; )
Praying continued favor on this team for the rest of their journey.
Amy was quick to remind everyone yesterday that the mission trip begins now, not when they reach their destination. They are carriers of the glory of God...in the airports...on the planes...in the restaurants...in the bathrooms...in the hotel...in the tent...in the dirt...EVERYWHERE!
So yes, while they are almost THERE, THERE is not the mission...NOW is the mission!
NOW is when they love The One and love the one...
