This is the second day of our journey. And as Caroline and I sit and reflect on all our situations at the airports, we agree that God  has been in front of us the whole time. For instance at Seoul airport they first told us that our carry on bags were too heavy for the Nok airline. And we...

Smooth Trip, Safe Arrival


Posted by Team Leader on

Our travel to Panama could not have gone more smoothly!  Much grace was given us at the Delta check-in, and all flights were uneventful. Never has the Panamanian airport been more quiet, nor the customs process less crowded. It was as if God cleared the airport just for us!  Traci...
