Customs Hurdles

^ So...getting into the UK felt kind of like that ^
one hurdle after another that we weren't getting over.
     In London, the border patrol gave us a hard time for a few misspoken words, which required Alyssa to put up a courageous 5 hour fight in the interrogation room and left Jaspreet and I completely in the dark. Luckily, Brad steered us clear of their tricky traps and eventually we made it to Colchester!! At least for the time being...
     But the hurdles we faced today included some serious lessons. Just as we were giving up hope on all 3 of us making it into the country together, we surrendered to God. We stopped trying to figure out the minds of the customs guards and stopped worrying about the future, and prayed that God's will be done. We had no more finished the word "Amen" than we got the call that Alyssa made it through customs and into the country!!! We quickly remembered that we need to trust God in all trials, and that our fate is in His hands only.

  1. I can't imagine what it must have been like to wonder what was going on with Alyssa...hour after hour. Poor Alyssa. I am so happy that y'all finally made it to Colchester. Sleep well tonight....and enjoy tea tomorrow!
