Mission Down Under: A Call to Action in Australia Part 2

Early in the morning we caught a little bi-plane from Newcastle back to Sydney. There we were to connect with a 9:40 a.m. flight to Canberra, the nation's capital. Unbeknownst to us, the connecting flight had been canceled by the airline and we landed too late to catch the only other morning flight to Canberra. Donna was scheduled to speak to a group of ministers' wives at 1:30 p.m., and I was scheduled for a radio program at the same time. By 10:30 a.m. a driver was recruited by Fred's office and, after retrieving our luggage, we set out on the three-hour car trip.

Canberra is situated inland from Sydney and the drive through the countryside was beautiful. Of course we arrived late. The ladies waited for Donna, but I missed the radio program. After Donna's meeting we were taken on a short tour of me capital and then on to a Christian radio station where we taped a couple of programs to be aired at a later date.
