During a return flight from overseas, our plane suddenly shook quite violently. The pilot then announced that we were losing oil from an engine and so were returning to our departure point to have the problem taken care of.

At that moment I turned to God. Because He is everywhere present, I realized there was no need to fear. Isaiah promises us that God takes care of us all the way (41:10): "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." I knew we could all fully expect to complete the trip harmoniously.

The next morning, after being put up for the night in London, we boarded the plane again. The pilot assured us that all was well, and in a short time we were on our way. However, some time after takeoff we were again informed that there were problems with the aircraft.
