Well, the Switzerland team has arrived in the beautiful Swiss Alps! After the completion of our training at the Lord’s Boot Camp and Commissioning, the Switzerland team bussed to the Miami Airport to wait for our departing flight. Throughout our trip, God has demonstrated His provision and desire to see our whole team in Switzerland. The first was when He demonstrated this to us by providing us with a plane ticket for a team member who had developed some complications in his travel arrangements. The airline did not believe they could remedy the situation without us purchasing him another ticket at full fare. After nearly an hour at the ticket counter, the airline was able to fix the problem without any cost!!! Praise God!!! The ticket agent was more amazed than we were! The second situation developed when our arriving flight into London was delayed and we only had an hour to make a connecting flight. Although we hurried, security lines were long and we arrived at the gate 10 minutes after the scheduled departure, but the airline chose to hold the plane for us.
Upon arrival into Geneva, we bussed two hours to the small village of Einigen, arriving around 5:30 PM. The team is amazed by the beauty of God’s creation which surrounds us! We were most surprised to discover that we are living on a working farm, with sheep, horses & much more. We are on the hilside overlooking a lake. The team was able to set up all of their tents and are enjoying the crisp cool Swiss evenings. Today the tempeture was rather warm, in the 90’s, although they ar expecting some cool nights in our future. We were greeted by a wonderful dinner of soup, bread & cheese—the team loved it! We will spend tomorrow setting up our kitchen and speaking with the missionary about our project.
