We have flown with this airline many times, and we were actually on the first leg of this exact flight just a couple weeks ago, as it's a Port Moresby--Lae--Madang route. It forces us to pause and consider that it could've happened to us.
It's a good reminder that this life is short, so short. Our days are numbered and only the Lord knows when it will be our last.
Please join us in prayer for those who have lost loved ones.
