Divine Intervention

Joanne and I had invited Andreas to come with us for a visit to Ontario, Canada and he accepted. We had our return tickets with American Airlines. The three of us went to the Ontario, CA, airport (which was only five miles from the home of my brother Edward) to purchase a ticket for Andreas.

When the man at the American Airlines was going to enter the information in the computer for all of us, something went wrong with the recording devices. He tried for a least 20 minutes, while we patiently waited. Finally, in frustration, he said, "Please go over to the airline counter next to ours. They will accept your return tickets to Toronto." We were promptly served without computer problems. The next day, the Los Angeles newspaper headlines read: "American Airlines, Destination Toronto, Hijacked To Cuba!" If the Angel of the Lord had not intervened on our behalf, we would have been on that flight. The following day we had a safe landing at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

"For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways." (Psalm 91:11)
