In the coming weeks, we desire to share the amazing trip we had coming home to Kenya and later, the last leg of our visit in America to Libby, Montana. It was filled with challenges, major troubles, with even more major divine answers and protection. For every challenge there was an immediate response from heaven. But thanks to the saints prayers and our Father’s ever-watching care, we arrived safely home with all our 260 lbs. of baggage and plenty of awesome testimonies testifying to the goodness of God.
It took 6 days traveling just from Libby, Montana to our home in Nakuru, Kenya with all the proper Covid documents enabling us to board the plane to Kenya. We got up at 3 a. m. in Libby and were sitting at the airport in Kalispel, Montana at 5 a.m. waiting to board the plane. When the time came to board the pilot walked in and said … “sorry, a panel fell off of the fuselage and we have to cancel this flight”.
Understand that our schedule was very tight and everything depended on the timing of that flight, which being canceled resulted in us missing our Covid test appointment, losing our direct flight to Nairobi (which only flies out once a week) and possibly having to stay in New York another week, which we did not have funds for. Being in New York is intimidating when everything goes smooth … which this particular time … certainly did not.
Rescheduling our flights and arriving in New York at 12 p.m. that night, we were faced with a 2 to 3 hour wait for a taxi to the hotel. Someone suggested we walk a half mile (in the airport) to an Uber station which we did only to find out our Kenyan phones didn’t operate in New York. We were approached by a shady character offering to take us and our 6 pieces of luggage to the hotel 15 miles away for $85 dollars. We didn’t know what to do but we knew for certain we couldn’t do that.
So we prayed for our Father to send us a friend. Almost immediately, I turned and began sharing our dilemma with a man who then offered to share the price of his Uber connection and take us to the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel he helped us unload our baggage and said, “I feel I need to help you more” and completely paid the Uber bill. Thank you Father!
