At about 3,000 meters Paul broke out of the clouds into the clear night. Wow! The sky was full of brilliant stars as far as he could see in every direction, and a sliver of a moon shone brightly. Paul exclaimed, "Lord, how awesome You are! How magnificently powerful!"
Up there in the heavens, Paul praised and praised God. There just weren't enough words to pour out his thanksgiving to Him. As Paul flew through the night, he thanked God for each little detail of the escape.
Paul was so glad that he had gotten away from the guerrillas. But now he had another reason for wanting to get back to the Mission headquarters. He knew things that nobody else knew about the group that was holding Tim, Bunny, and Steve captive. What he knew might be used to help free them.
