‘The Lord answered our prayers,’ says minister aboard flight that landed on remote island
Brent MissildineAn Alabama preacher and his family headed on a mission trip to the Philippines were aboard a United Airlines flight that made an emergency landing on the remote Pacific Ocean island of Midway on Friday.
“My wife (Lisa), my daughter (Sarah) and I prayed together and accepted whatever God’s will was,” Missildine said, “but of course asked for our lives to be spared. And thankfully, I believe the Lord answered our prayers, and we were able to land on Midway island.”
This picture is of Brent while on Midway. He is inviting anyone who felt like they weren’t ready to meet God, to sit down and study the Bible and learn how they can be ready. God is good!
In a comment to The Christian Chronicle, Missildine said:
Each person on our team showed courage and strength. After the captain addressed (the) crowd of passengers, Demar shouted out his trademark phrase, “God is good,” and many people then shouted “All the time.” Demar said it three times. It was great encouragement to all. This truly was a team effort.
