So We Keep On Waiting...

"So we keep on waiting" was the song playing in the bus that took me to this hotel. Today has been terrible. I feel like crying but I probably won't because I'm a man. In case you haven't figured it out, I'm not in India. I am in fact in Newark. I got to the Cincinnati airport two hours before I needed too and waited. Then my flight was delayed for 2 hours so I waited. Because my flight was delayed by 2 hours I missed my next flight to India. So then I talked to the Continental guys and they said it was Deltas fault and if someone was going to give me a hotel room it would be them. So, I went to Delta, about a half mile of walking in the other direction. Guess what, Deltas not there that late so I went to the information desk. They sent me back to Continental. I took those dumb slow trains 4 times. This process took about 2 hours. Thank God I found someone who had pity on me and gave me a free hotel room. She was very nice and said if anyone asks I'm sick. So I waited for he hotel bus. Hey look here it is, the bus for Holiday Inn North, but no, as the driver informed me I now needed to go to the Four Points Sheraton. Finally its all over, right? Nope, I called the guy in India who was supposed to pick me up and he said that he waited 3 hours for me yesterday. Yesterday! How could this be? I felt so bad. I don't even understand how he got the wrong information. He was a bit upset. Well, at least this is a really nice hotel. I think I'll take a bath.

CRAP!! I knew that I wanted to get together to pray with you before you left and now I know why. I've been praying...but for the wrong stuff thus far. Please know that all the guys will be coming together to pray for your success during these next few weeks!

The prayer I need. Today is a new day. I'm at the airport again, waiting. At least I got a free $250 hotel room and I found a hack to get free wwfi at the airport.
