Scientists’ plans hit a snag.

The Arctic Ocean. A big ship. Icy cold. Polar bears. Dark nights. Scientists got used to these. But it was time to go home.

READ MORE: The German research ship Polarstern has been in the Arctic Ocean since last September. Scientists onboard study the ocean and climate there. Many of those people were set to go home in April. Then the coronavirus hit. New scientists and crew were ready replacements. But they needed to wait in Germany. No one with the virus would be allowed to go. Hebrews 13:8 reminds us, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and, today, and forever.” We need not fear changes in our plans.
