After the all-nighter and trying to pack at 3:30AM, we quickly rushed to the Jakarta International Airport to catch our early flight to Kuala Lumpur. After landing in KL, I had to still bargain for a cheap taxi ride to the main international airport. It bothered me this one taxi company had a monopoly at the airport and was charge a crazy price. Whenever there is a monopoly it is easy to get complacent and have this superiority mentality. Ah yes, a healthy competition always puts us on our toes.
It is kind of like a new church plant in an area. The new church plant always challenges the status quo as they try new innovation ways to share the Gospel and build God’s Kingdom. In fact, usually this causes other more established churches to rethink their paradigm and even challenge them to upgrade their ministry. At the end everyone wins – more souls in God’s Kingdom and more churches being effective for God’s glory.
(Sigh)… I digress.
Anyways, we are 10% on our journey and towards our final destination. Christina and I have been talking about how we want to give all the kids a huge hug as soon as we walk through the doors.
Now from KL it is on to Taipei and then to LA… then finally to DTW.
