We are back in the Philippines! After arriving in Manila, we found out the airport is closed till tomorrow at 5 am (Saturday, 7 pm EST). No flights leaving due to an aircraft blocking the runway with a flat tire. My mom was supposed to take the 12 am flight to LAX, but due to the shutdown would need to rebook all of her tickets! The only options for mom to rebook was the 22nd or the 24th. So mom gets to stay with me this whole week and it was free of charge to change the tickets! We then took a bus from Manila to my Aunt Joanna’s house, which is about 4 hours away. We made it this morning at about 4:30. Pray that we will be a blessing to Crossroads Baptist Church here in Urdaneta City, Philippines.
