It seems to be a coincidence but I have a niece and a friend from church who are going to different parts of the planet on different flights on the same day. My niece Samantha is flying off to England with her pathfinder troop and my friend Sivoki is going to Fiji for two months. It's also interesting to note that flights both take ten hours to reach their destinations. Samantha is going to stay in London for about a week, see the rest of the country and then return to London and then finally come back to Calgary.
Sivoki is going to take WestJet to Los Angeles and then take a Fiji Airways flight to the international airport in Nadi, Fiji and then to Nausori airport near Suva, the capital of Fiji. She tells me that she is going to the World Harvest Church which is on the corner of Kings Road and Khalsa Road in Suva. All the while I hope they're both safe and I'm praying for them both.
Not too long ago Tena Schapansky, another member of my congregation went to Israel and travelled extensively there. She took a lot of pictures and she gave me a memory stick to look at them. I saw a lot of pictures of Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee, the place in the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized , the Dead Sea and theh caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found
