For those of you who don't know, my Dad left with this group on Dec. 5th to help build shelters, and give whatever aid they can to the people in Pakistan before winter comes. Here's a small update. Please pray that their luggage would get their, and they would be able to effectively preach the gospel as they provide whatever assistance they can.
"Some of the men headed for Pakistan have arrived with no luggage...here is a email that was passed to me from Mark S. (Frontiers)
" Ah, the best laid plans.
Nine of us arrived in Islamabad a few hours ago but our luggage is somewhere between Hong Kong and Pakistan. Probably closer to Hong Kong.
If this were a vacation, the most we'd have to wrestle with is having to go buy a new swim suit. But this isn't a vacation, and the luggage holds the cold-weather gear of a group of men who want to get to the mountains as soon as possible to build shelters for villagers who face death by cold with each passing night.
We're hoping it arrives tonight. But one man whose luggage went missing a week ago is still waiting.
We'll go, one way or another. It just might be a lot more uncomfortable than anticipated. And we anticipated a lot of discomfort. "
Also an update from the men hopefully will be on KTAR 620am on the dial this Friday the 9th and the 12th @ 6:50 am AZ time. If you can listen somehow...you can hear what is going on."
