I am in Paris, France – another airport and another big city. Seen one and I think you have seen them all. Got through security in Amsterdam without a hitch. Here I set the alarms off and went through another pat down – they didn’t find anything of course. I am always amazed that I seem to set every second alarm structure off and yet people with multiple piercings ahead of me get through without setting off the alarm structure. It must be my magnetic personality.
Have found the washrooms – this is good. Found a place to buy some fruit salad for a late breakfast (bun and cheese on the plane – may be a breakfast of champions here but it is a disaster for people with my eating issues). So, a small fruit salad and a bottle of water (no diet coke anywhere) and it was $12.00 American. I think I am in the wrong business. However, it was just what the doctor ordered as there is now an hour’s wait still and then a 8.5 hour flight to Toronto (due to storm delays yesterday). Then a run from one terminal to the next to catch another flight – 3.5 hours – and I will be home. It is good as I preach tomorrow both in Regina and in Oxbow. Late last night I arranged someone to drive for me as I will be working with jet lag in a major way. Today was suppose to be the “jet lag day” but plans changed. So, I will be doing two services and 560 Km. tomorrow while my body adjusts to a major time shift and realizes it is day when it has been night and night when it has been day.
We have met some wonderful people from the country of Kazakhstan and it seems that they would like me to come to their nation to teach and prophesy – the city is Almaty. I looked at a rather incomplete map and found the country – tucked in below a part of Russia that juts out to the north of it and borders China on the west side of that large nation. I have no idea where the city of Almaty is but when I find a better map will look it up. It will be fun to now look on Goggle Earth to see where it is and also where we have been exactly in the last 15 days. Amazing geography and only by travelling am I learning where nations and cities really are – more than theory as I am living and visiting them.
Will write more as the trip progresses and time allows…
Added note: Since arriving home I have been invited to Crimea (a region in Ukraine) and Dniepropretrovsk (a city in Ukraine) as well as Moscow, Russia. Be in prayer, please.
