All this week Mike is in Izmir, Turkey attending Mission To the World’s worldwide leadership training. Every Team Leader from each MTW mission team in the world will be in attendance. The conference is a time for training, evaluation and study to better prepare MTW’s Team Leaders for their mission work.
Sunday morning at 5am Mike took a bus from La Ceiba, Honduras to San Pedro Sula. This would begin a long bit of travel that would find him with connections in Miami, Madrid, Munich and finally in Izmir, Turkey.
There was a major complication in the Madrid airport and Mike was six hours late arriving in Turkey. His tickets were unexplainably canceled, his luggage was lost and nobody wanted to accept blame and fix the problem. In the end it all worked out and Mike arrived at the conference in Izmir nearly 36 hours after he left our home in La Ceiba.
The delay caused Mike to miss the opening meeting on Monday evening, but all the important lectures and training began Tuesday morning and he didn’t miss any of that
