At the moment it is 5:18 in the afternoon but my body thinks it is 10:18 at night.... so I am a little tired to say the least (so if something doesn't make sense, sorry!!).
This was the first time I traveled by myself, and it wasn't too bad. On my first flight I was able to talk with this elderly man for the whole time (45 min.). He is a farmer, and we talked about many things, and I was able to share the Gospel with him and give him a track! Praise the Lord. And then on my left from MN to NY I sat by this man who use to be an opera singer in NY...he has traveled a lot so we had some good conversations as well. I didn't get to share the Gospel with him, but I did give him a tract that he might read...I pray he did. He was a great blessing as I had to hurry to my next flight because he asked everyone to please move aside because I needed to get through ( I didn't want to be rude but God put someone in my life to help me:)
But then the craziness set in. We were late getting in, and then I had to go and get my boarding pass from the desk and then wait for the shuttle...once in the shuttle we jerked to a halt in the middle of the trip. All of us on the shuttle weer a bit confused, and then 10 seconds later a plane went right by us....ha we were then all very thankful for this sudden stop. Then I ran to my gate ( I felt like the family on Home Alone) and the lady at the gate asked "Are you Hannah?" I said yes and got on the plane (I heard the lady say "ok you're last passenger is here now"). God was good and held the plane. And I had prayed for maybe a window sit by myself since this was an overnight flight, and guess what? God answered that prayer too.
I was picked up at the airport by a couple who works at the school. They took me to a city outside of Madrid called Camrama (or something like that). Once I arrived the headmaster of the school showed me around the school and gave me a tour. The lady I am staying with lives right around the corner from the school, so once her classes were done, she brought me to her appartment so I could get settled. And then I went with her to do some grocery shopping (which kind of reminds me of shopping in Ecuador). Now I am just trying to stay awake because I am really tired, but I know that it is better if I wait till a little later to sleep.
I am excited, although very tired and a little overwhelmed, but God made it clear He wants me here! So I will keep you up too date with what He's doing. Thanks for praying.
