Ethiopian Airlines

Well, as it usually is, my first impressions were wrong again!

This flight has been great.  The plane, a Boeing 767, is nice.  It is only 20% full with people sleeping everywhere.  I am too big to do the lie down in 4 chairs thing, but I slept well and got in another couple of hours which gave me 4 for the night over 2 flights.  That will get me by.  I will now be 7 hours ahead of OKC in time.

Wrong on the meal again!  Never believe the schedule or your experience, just continue to stay flexible.  Not breakfast at the first or before landing but a wonderful fish lunch with rice and veggies half way thru 6 hour flight.

So this experience was pleasant, where as the first flight was an old plane, packed, tight seats, and hassle on luggage.

I did get the draft of the second article done at the airport and am ready for a new adventure inNigeria for the first time in 20 years.  I really want to help these business leaders with biblical, creative ideas as they are living in a very corrupt business and government climate. I want to encourage and teach and train the leaders and build bridges for the pastors also.

Nigeria has been in the news with killings in Jos and other events, so we need to be alert and sensitive to opportunities.

So after an immigration (I had to get a very expensive visa here ahead of time) experience and time to clean up and get settled, I should be ready to go. This evening may be easy, but tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday should bring public and private ministry and many new friends.

That is what it is all about and worth the pain and difficulties just to make an eternal difference in the lives of a few key leaders. I continually look for the 20% and the 4%…

So let the search begin.
