God gave Greg favor as he was able to use my Delta Frequent Travel Miles to get a free round trip in business or first class. Whenever good things happen in our lives as the Morgan family, and they happen daily, we stop and give God praise. In fact, I will lift up my hands to the heavens and give God praise and thanksgiving for every thing I am aware of, and give God all the glory.
Greg will depart the Amsterdam International Airport on Sunday, April 3, at 8:40 a. m. and is scheduled to arrive in Budapest, Hungary at 10:35 a. m. He will be met at the airport by a former colleague of his who taught in the high school where Greg taught for two years. Maintaining contact with people we meet and with whom we have a relationship is so important to us, and we endeavor to keep in contract, and Greg has done a great job with that.
The two years Greg was a missionary for our church in Budapest were very meaningful to Greg. He took it seriously by studying and learning the Hungarian language. He formed a witnessing team that went out on Friday evenings to sing, preach, witness to Jesus to the people who would stop to listen. It is noteworthy that the first Hungarian man he led to Jesus was at the same age as I was back in the '90s.
One Christmas, Melvine, Stephanie and I flew to Budapest to be with him during this special season when we celebrate the birth of Savior.
We took a train from Budapest to Vienna, Austria to board a modern, streamline Austrian train to Salzburg for Christmas. We took the Sound of Music tour and saw where much of that great movie was filmed. We visited the church were Maria married. I knelt with Stephanie and we prayed about the man God was preparing to marry Stephanie. Of course, Stephanie never married. Apparently God had a better plan for her.
In our walk with Jesus we learn to completely trust Him. He has a plan for each of our lives. He does all things well. I am convinced that He will never withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).
On behalf of Greg, our son, we ask that you lift him up in prayer this week as he visits a number of people including teacher friends and missionaries. He will meet many Hungarians in the market place. Pray that Greg will use him to be a witness for Christ.
Greg is to fly back to Atlanta on Saturday, April 9, and arriving at 3:10 p. m.
[Editor's Note: After Melvine, Greg, and I enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Braselton, GA, at Exit 129, I-85, Greg drove us to the new International Flight Section of the Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport. It was new to me, and we had to follow the signs to get to the departure section. Greg took his luggage, checked in at the outside curb area. and later proceeded to the gate where he boarded his flight.
I was able to drive home from the Airport with no problem following my pacemaker implant.
Greg called us at home from the aircraft where he was in his first-class cubical. The flight attendant had already served him a glass of water. He told me he was going to take a photo of his cubicle in business or first class. What a wonderful gift God has given to Greg--God's favor!.
On his way home from Budapest, he will spend the night at the Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport. The next morning he will fly to Manchester, United Kingdom, and then, back to the USA and Atlanta.]
