Train problems


We had just finished lunch and were cleaning up a little and getting ready to go to teaching appts, when Pres. called and told us that due to the 2 train crash in Brussels yesterday 2 of the sister missionaries, Sisters Bagwell and Clark were stranded in Mouscron at the Gare. They had come to France yesterday to do their legality and had to spend the night to finish up today. After they were done they took the train, but it detoured and went to Kortrijk instead. Someone told them to take another train and then transfer 2 times, but the first train actually stopped in Mouscron and they were told that there would be no more trains today at all. So, Pres. asked us to help them out. He actually had to cancel our appts. for us because our Belgian phone doesn't work in France and vice versa and our appts were in France. We happily picked up the Sisters and drove them to Saint Ghislain where Sister Brubaker, pres's wife, met us at the half way point and picked them up. We had a nice ride together and had some fun conversation- an unexpected but pleasant afternoon.
