Butt Tape Saves Lives...But How About Airplanes?
That's when I spy this maintenance guy walking toward our plane with DUCT TAPE and a CROW BAR thing. Sure enough, the DUCT TAPE was for the fix. [That is how you do anything in THE STICKS right?] So glad he boarded the plane and fixed a seat in the back and we were off and it wasn't to hold the engine on or something.
You do what you have to do when you are called to the middle of nowhere! When God sends a vision, you make it happen in HIS power, with HIS people, and HIS timing. A little bubble gum, bailing twine and duct tape will help though for those moments when you are ready to lose it all. [and yeah...that crow bar comes in real handy too at times...]
Oh yeah, imagine the dudes pain in the pic when he had to remove that mess from his hiney...sounds a whole lot like church to me.
It is so cool that as we are barely held together like that seat on our flight to remember that it isn't just about the details or the outside that matter, it's the people inside and the destination we are helping them head to.
**Would you consider sending the gift of some duct tape, bubble gum, bailing twine and anything else to MISSION WEST this Christmas? Our destination of helping to put churches in 22+ cities without 1 church in them in UTAH needs YOU! Consider an on-going or 1 time gift to help us reach people for Christ. You can get the deets and E-Give HERE. Thank you. For real....Thank you.
