Czech Republic update #1

July 7, 2012


We have arrived safely to the Czech Republic, but it was an adventure.  Due to a late arrival to London, and some delays through security, three of us missed our connecting flight to Prague. Fortunately, we were booked on the next flight to Prague, which would get us there only 2 hours after the rest of the team. Not so fast ! As we were about to land in Prague, a severe thunderstorm hit and flooded the runway. Next thing we know, we are off to Dresden, Germany to wait out the storm.  After sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for the plane to refuel, and for the storm to pass, we headed off to Prague once again. When we arrived, we weren’t sure what to expect. Where was the rest of our team? Where were our bags? Those were just a few of the questions running through our heads. We arrived to find eight out of eleven bags waiting for us in baggage claim. Apparently, none of the bags made it on the original flight.  After collecting the eight bags and mulling over what to do about the missing bags, we decided to head out of baggage claim to see if someone there to pick us up. Thankfully, the missionaries were there waiting for us and off we went to our apartment.  As for the missing bags, they arrived at the apartment late this evening.  Needless to say, it was an eventful day but we praise the Lord that all six of made it safe.

This evening, we had the opportunity to check out the baseball fields, where we will be holding camp. We are very excited about starting camp on Monday, and being a part of the ministry going on already in Prague. We can’t to see what God has in store for us. I’m sure the adventure has just begun!

In Christ,

Mike for the team
