Take heart, TH Spangler. It was more likely Qatar Airways at either Doha or IAH. The latter is where I suspect he made the transition to AA for the regional jet into JAX. I made all of those connections pre-pandemic and never checked bags unless absolutely necessary for this very reason.
Nothing against Voddie at all. Leaving him out of the equation, I find it funny about how many people think pastors, church leaders are "overworked."
I was a member of a pastors family for 50 years. I have known 100's of pastors, missionaries, ect. I can count on less than one hand, those who worked close to as hard as their average congregant.
