Stranded in NYC

Well here we are. It seems ironic that instead of seeing beautiful beaches, floating markets and Thai people...we're back where it all started...in The Big Apple...the city of New York. Our plan was to be in Thailand by this time...leaving December 3rd. It seemed like everything was all set...sold all our belongings...including our car, resigned from our jobs, left Pennsylvania a week before to spend time with the family. It was a going a little too smooth. And here it comes...a few hours away from taking our flight...the airline calls and the airport in Thailand is CLOSED!!! Turns out the Thai people wanted the Prime Minister of The Kingdom of Thailand to be ousted again. Yes, they weren't happy with this one either. Our flight was changed to December 30th...one month in New York. No home, no job...what were we to do...pray, pray, pray!!! Jehovah always blesses...our family took us in. They've been wonderful. We've actually gained a little weight from all the food they've given us.

We've had some great experiences. Met a Cambodian family...offered literature in Cambodian...this was our excuse to go to the Bethel in Brooklyn and walk the Brooklyn Bridge. Got back into Street Witnessing...to basically anyone who would listen...spanish, vietnamese, cambodian, korean, chinese...we mean anyone.

We figured what's so wrong with being a tourist...









Stay tuned..more to come!!!
