Elder Marcusen has arrived in Ghana after a 17 hour flight and an 4 hour layover at JFK. The layover was only suppose to be 2 hours, however, the flight was delayed due to the airline company not having seats for the missionaries even though the missionaries had boarding tickets. After rearranging some passengers and luggage ALL 15 missionaries were able to board the plane. Elder Marcusen was blessed with an upgraded seat. He did not complain with having extra leg room for the long flight to Africa.
