El Salvador - We Made It!
We're here safe and sound in El Salvador! Not just Jeff and I, but Tony too, who traveled 9 hours from Bolivia just to be a part of my ministry team. Getting here was a bit of a challenge because our plane had electrical problems. They tried and tried but couldn't fix it. Finally they had to get us another plane (3 hours later). Jeff and I had peace because we knew that all of you were praying for us and our safety. We believe that it was God's hand that held us back from that original plane. It was great when we finally arrived at the airport in El Salvador. The first thing we saw was Chepe waving and smiling at us. Then we saw Tony smiling, behind his camera, as always. How amazing that I have such great friends all over the world!
Well, Chepe had a big surprise for me tonight. He had a party planed to celebrate my birthday which was a couple weeks ago (feb 8th). Chepe drove me with my eyes closed all the way to the restaurant. Even though my eyes were closed I could smell chicken a mile away, Pollo Campero chicken to be exact! Many people were there who meet us on our last visit. This party was Latin style, piņata and all! How cool!
Guess what? There was a man watching us at the party and he inquired about me. Turns out he is a pastor! Yep you guessed it, he wants me to go speak at his church sometime this week.
We got back to hotel pretty late and had a quick meeting. My schedule is PACKED!!! Looks like I'm speaking 12 times this week plus a possible TV appearance. Can you send me vitamins? Speaking of vitamins I better go to bed. It's midnight here and we have to meet Chepe at 6:30 a.m. for breakfast. I'll be speaking at 7:30 a.m. at a school. I will speak twice to two different groups. Then later that evening I will speak at a church. Please pray that God will energize me and my team and that my words will be His words.
Blessings to all who read this. Know that I love you.
Excited in El Salvador,
