Iceland Volcano Eruption: Ash grounds flights in UK and Northern Europe
"RussiaToday — April 15, 2010 — Follow latest updates at http://twitter.com/RT_com and at http://www.facebook.com/pages/RT/3266... Volcanic ash from Iceland that's blowing across northern Europe is severely disrupting air traffic across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia. In the next two hours, all flights in British airspace will be suspended, grounding hundreds of planes, including those at the world's busiest international airport at Heathrow in London. The ash is dangerous to aircraft because the tiny particles can damage engines, causing them to shut down."
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "...is a European island country located in the North Atlantic Ocean on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It has a population of about 320,000 and a total area of 103,000 km2 (39,769 sq mi). The capital and largest city is Reykjavík, with the surrounding area being home to some two-thirds of the national population. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active on a large scale. The interior mainly consists of a plateau characterised by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands.

"...I rented a car and drove around the island. I would stop and carry the cross in different areas. It was in May. Sometimes the road was covered in ice and mud.
I carried the cross in Akureyri, which is only a few kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. It was a wonderful joy carrying the cross through this city. The people were very nice, very friendly, and very curious. A newspaper reporter came out to do a story about the cross walk. I had good news coverage. Many people prayed to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. ..
In Iceland there are glaciers but there is also many hot springs, it's not nearly as cold as I would have thought it would be. It seems to just rain and there are cold winds and fog all the time. It is a very physically beautiful place, unlike any place you've ever seen before.
The people were lovely and it was great carrying the cross along the North Coast of Iceland.
I had a wonderful walk with the cross into the capital city of Reykjavik. I talked and prayed with many people.
