Jeannie made it safely to Haiti! Her trip wasn’t without some bumps. In Minneapolis, she got bumped on her first flight, and then was told that the airline wasn’t going to be able to get her on the the flight to Atlanta (she was flying on a buddy pass) because it’s such a busy time of year. At the last minute, however, they got her on the 7:30 am flight out. She was told that she wouldn’t make her connection to Port-au-Prince, and that she would need to stay in Atlanta for the night. But, since God is in charge, the flight happened to arrive in Atlanta early and a flight attendant basically told the passengers on Jeannie’s plane to let her go first and then thanked her on the loud speaker for caring for people. (So cool!) When she got off the plane and made it to the gate, she was told she couldn’t get on because she was supposed to be there an hour ago. The other flight attendant was already printing her ticket, though, and even upgraded her to a roomier seat. Yay!
Jeannie arrived safely in Port-au-Prince and spent the night in a guest house. The next day, she took a little plane to Cap-Haitien to meet up with her friend, Dr. Manno.
During her time of rest today, the Lord gave her these verses:
Jeremiah 17:7-8 New International Version
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Malachi 3:10-12 New International Version
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty.12 “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,”says the Lord Almighty.
