Grace Tean Stranded in London - Prayer Requested

Our team of 12 from Grace Church had no problems at all yesterday with their drive into Philly, their check-in at the Philadelphia airport, or their flight on British Airways to London. But once they landed, problems began to occur. Their connecting flight to France was cancelled due to fog and mist that turned to ice. It took them over 2 hours to find their luggage and it appeared that all hotels were full and they would be spending the night in the airport (kind of sounds like a modern day scene from The Nativity - minus the pregnant virgin of course).

In the end, they got their luggage and were able to get a hotel paid for by the airline...praise the Lord! They are now rebooked tomorrow but on a flight to Geneva which is still a couple of hours from their original destination in France. Unfortunately, they had to split the team up into two groups of 6 people each and their flights from London to Geneva Thursday are almost four hours a part. So please be lifting up the following specific prayer requests up to the Lord on behalf of our team:

That they would have a good night's rest!

That weather would allow them to fly from London to Geneva tomorrow!

That God would work it out for them to all 12 be on the same flight tomorrow!

That God would use this unexpected delay in their lives to His glory!

Here's a POSITIVE about it. The drive from Geneva to the Chateau is absolutely beautiful! I pray they can do it in daylight.

Without question! They will certainly enjoy that! Thanks, Mary!
