Sunday Arrival

We had a nice flight and arrived safely at NYSUM. We held hands and prayed at the gate before boarding the plane. A lot of excitement in the group. During the flight, we played our usual game of "musical chairs" as we switch seats with each other to sit next to students we want to get to talk to and get to know better. I know it always makes the flight more enjoyable for me as I catch up with students' lives and find out how we can pray for them and better minister to them. Some incredible stories in our team, you'd be surprised of the laughter, tears, and ministry that takes place in a simple 3 hour flight. As we flew over Manhattan it was cool to see the students looking out the windows at the beautiful lights, buildings, and bridges down below us. After picking up our luggage, the NYSUM vans picked us up and we went straight to our rooms to sleep...well almost everyone...some of us are writing daily blogs for parents ;). Tomorrow, evangelism ministry and concert all day at Coney Island...keep us in your prayers. Will post another blog tomorrow. - Leo
