I'm sure many missionaries have stories of God's faithfulness to provide for the needs of those who are willing to step out in faith. My own daughter was the recipient of this type of miraculous provision when she went on the mission field; there was no bank account to back her decision. We watched as several thousand dollars came rolling in, within 90 days--what we thought seemed impossible was absolutely God. Thanks for writing from this perspective. Hopefully it will be an encouragement to many.

A wonderful testimony. God always provides right on time! This was a wonderfully descriptive story and I enjoyed reading it.

What I liked - good opening paragraph - drew me to want to know were he was going. Good descriptive, strong verbs. Flowed nicely and good structure.

What I might change- I was hoping for maybe more dialogue or some action. The ending came fast and maybe you could have built it someway in the middle more. Great story!!

You did an excellent job with character devlopment here, you kept me reading all the way through just to know what happened next. Loved the last few lines with the plane ticket!
Like your description of the awkward teen. I thought the ending was a bit rushed, but I know it's difficult with the limited word count. It did make sense to the story, though, and all in all, this was very good!
