Who’s Plans are they anyway?

Paraphrase of Proverbs 16:1 “I make my plans but it is God who has the final word.”
After spending last night regrouping, repacking and visiting with newly-found friends, we three, Marg, Bob and I nodded off for a few winks. Our driver arrived at 3:00 am to take us to the airport for our homeward flight.
Dragging all our luggage (somewhat heavy due to Roshen and a parcel going back to a Ukrainian family in TO), we endeavored to leave this place quietly, down the three floors and on to Ed’s van.
Most of our travel these past two weeks has been by subway and taxi. How grateful we are that Ed willingly stayed up all night to give us the ride to catch our flight.
Even more grateful that he stayed with us to check-in and discover why our flight was cancelled.
None of us can speak the language yet!
A major snow storm in Britain caused many closures. At 5:00 am, we turned around to make the trip back to ‘our home here in Kiev’, not so quietly!
The exciting part in all this is that we get to do it all over again tomorrow at 3:00. This morning must have been the practice run. Poor Ed!
One simple thing: the storms continue. Maybe, more opportunity awaits!
Calls made to our ‘rides’ from TO airport are both available Wednesday. Wonderful!
Thursday Dec 2, about a hundred women will gather in Elora Central Pentecostal Church for a Christmas celebration to end this semester of Bible study. The speaker? None other than Marg Gibb. However, she is now repacking and re-planning this week’s agenda. Plan B is now in effect for Ruth Maclean and her committee there.
Many of you have made this life-changing discovery: To be part of this kind of travel, Gumby is a ‘key word.’ (Remember the flexible toy of the 70’s?)
Stop by soon for ‘Little Opportunities’
