That evening one Bible verse meant more to Tim and Bunny than ever before: "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28).
They said that verse over and over to themselves and to each other. Finally they declared, "We don't understand it, but we believe it. God is in control!"
They went to bed. Bunny shook and shook as she tried to relax and sleep. Finally she and Tim slept; not very well though, because every ten or 15 minutes a guerrilla shined his big flashlight right in their eyes to make sure they weren't trying to escape.
The next morning came. There was nothing to do but wait for the airplane to come and, at the same time, hope and pray that it would not land.
About ten minutes before the airplane was due to arrive four guerrillas took off down the path to the airstrip with all their guns and ammo.
Bunny and Tim looked at each other. What were the guerrillas planning? Were they going to try to get the plane? Did they want to take the pilot prisoner? Surely the plane would not land.
