As many of you have heard by now, the 2007 Peru Missions team has not be able to return back to the United States due to a transportation workers’ strike. All forms of transportation have been blocked. We are now praying that things will open up so that the team can get back to Ann Arbor safely.
I have always been a firm believer that there are no “coincidences” or “accidents” in Christianity. When a person has a worldview that is centered around God’s Sovereignty, then we have to trust and believe that God is ultimately in control of all things. But even in the midst of God’s Sovereignty, we cannot forget about the spiritual warfare that ensues on a daily basis.
It is so easy to forget that Satan is also on a mission. He is doing everything and anything to go against the will of God. Satan has been causing havoc in the lives of Christians for many years. But we are not discouraged or dismayed because Christ has won the final victory for us on the cross and through His resurrection.
Nonetheless, we are learning how to trust in God – everything is a teaching moment for us. Let’s continue to pray for the team members so that they can arrive back safely.
