We arrived ready to go at the Pittsburgh Airport bright and early Saturday morning (August 20th) with bins and carry-ons in tow. It's quite a process moving 18 bins and pieces of dental equipment that weigh 50lbs each. But working together with help from family members it was all moved into the ticket counter for check-in very smoothly. God has been so generous through his people in so many ways for this trip. From our very generous NCC donors, to friends and family to random people along the way we have encountered His loving touch. The airport experience was no exception. It began a few weeks ago with permission United Airlines management to check our bins all the way from PIT to ACC---for no charge. That was a savings of $540! Upon arriving at the ticket counter our two lady agents were so helpful and nice and as were the TSA personnel who had to check every bin we handed them. And we have a lot of fun joking and talking with them as well.
It's funny how moving out of our everyday experiences can heighten awareness of how we can treat one another. Every encounter with every person can be an expression of God's love through us. We are his hands, his feet, his smile, his grace and his mercy.
A new commandment I give to you that you love one another. Just as I have loved you also are to love one another. By this all people will know you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34-35
Lord we pray that others may know that we are your disciples and may know the love you have to offer.
