Zambia Mission Trip Day 2- London

June 20, 2013

Daily Scripture (typed exactly as it was sent!):
Good morning!! Scripture for the day...Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let NOTHING move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. Amen! 1 Corinthians 15:58
Second text that day: Annnd...Quote of the day. "Do not ask God to guide your steps if you are not willing to move your feet." Ouch! That one got me a littel bit... :)

It has been a LONG 2 days!! Lots of time on the plane. Lots of motion sickness. We took an open top bus tour around London today. London is fabulous, so much beautiful architecture and amazing history. We all wore our "I am Second" shirts and I am amazed at how many people here have no idea what it means. I pray that a seed has been planted in each heart that has asked "Who is first?"

We were late getting back to the airport and missed our flight (security check-in) by minutes. I got sick in the taxi on the way to the airport. I do not remember the last time that I was so sick from traveling- it has been awhile and I hope it is awhile before I am again. We got our tickets moved to the next flight out (a hour after the first) but the group went to get our backpacks out of the locker (I stayed behind because I was still sick) and they wouldn't let us on that flight either (through security). It has been a hectic, crazy day, filled with moments of intense stress, but we know God is in charge! I have NO doubt that God did not want us on those airplanes. When we missed the first flight we found out that Rusty, Cade, Cody, Grace and Kailey were originally on the 2nd flight with Shelby. I find it odd that our ticket itinerary did not show the three of us split up but the airline did. I'll hand that one to the enemy- he tried to split us up but God is bigger than that and He stepped in and crushed the enemies attempts. We see the enemy lurking and trying to defeat us but we know our strength is from the Lord and thankfully the Lord ALWAYS wins! We will possibly leave tomorrow but again the flights are split, 6 on each flight. We are praying and trusting God right now.
