Stuck in the Mud! The trip almost canceled!

🇪🇨 🇪🇨🇪🇨Eye Surgical Mission Trip to Ecuador 🇪🇨 🇪🇨🇪🇨 It has been raining for days in Florida. The ground has turned into a soaking wet pad of soft mud. Luckily we have a break in the weather. Though the dark clouds are looming overhead, the rain has stopped for a little while. We quickly load up all 500 pounds of supplies onto our truck to head out to the airport. We try to beat another downpour so we can keep our supplies dry from the rain. As soon as Dr. Kondrot starts the truck, the heavy truck bed loaded with supplies sinks deep into the soft mud!!! We are very worried about the in a coming rainstorm and also our flight departure time is coming up very quickly. We call AAA to the rescue. A tow truck will be there in one hour. We might not make it! The Lord is watching over us. We get a tow truck very fast. The nice driver gets me on the phone and asks “Are you at the church at the end of the street?”. I say “Yes Sir, that’s us waiting at the church for you”. He says “I will be there in a few seconds!” We are saved and off we go. On-time departure for Ecuador. All is well! This morning as we try our best to beat the storm, making it to the airport on time, make sure we don’t forget our custom paperwork for the supplies, make sure we don’t forget anything for the surgical mission, we are under a lot of stress yet deep down I know we will be ok. As we drive out, I receive this text from our pastor friend who sends us off with a prayer: There’s no better place than being in the center of God’s will. It’s filled with peace, joy, and overwhelming security that God has prepared something way better than what you have for yourself. It’s so true. Thank you to all our friends and family who pray for us. Continue to keep us in your prayers as we begin another 2 weeks doing God’s work bringing sight to the blind in Ecuador.
