Arrival in El Salvador

Hola from sunny (hot) El Salvador. It was snowing when I left Indy and 85 when I landed.

The plane trip was good. Having Janet and Dave Michel as my traveling companions was perfect! I discovered I am totally co-dependent on someone - and SO blessed that God encouraged them to return to Indiana from Columbia on Feb. 12th - just in time to return to escort me to Central America on the 14th! All I needed to do was follow them like a puppy through the huge Houston airport. However we did have about a 7 hour layover before leaving for El Salvador (ES), so I think I might have found the right gate in that length of time....just thankful I didn't have to try.

We arrived in ES about 9 PM. Going through customs went better than expected and ALL of my luggage arrived! I could see my beautiful white-haired "amiga" from quite a distance. She is easy to spot in an El Salvadoran crowd! It was so comforting to see her waiting!
I thank each of you for your prayers and I give God total praise and glory for them being answered. Good job Prayer Warriors! Keep up the good work - PLEASE!!!
My first day in ES was great! Church, KFC chicken for lunch with new friends, a trip to GOD's DREAM RANCH! and eating a authentic ES pupusa was a perfect day.
It was about a 2 hour trip to the ranch -- and our friend Amilgar was our chauffer. It is an amazing place. The property is yet to be purchased -- but that is simply a small detail to God. When you hear Leila and see the property - you can SEE - there is a knowing in your heart that to be involved will this has blessings to huge for our our minds to just want to be a part of it! SO-get on board this VICTORY Train with Leila. Please join us in prayer that this vision of God's will be a reality soon....there is such a need. As the prayer momentum builds we are sure to witness miracle after miracle! Many things have already been happening to give confirmation.

Prayer Request: God to fill me with a clear mind centered on HIM as I have been asked to speak to the ladies at Leila´s church on Monday evening.

Dios bendiga (God Bless)
