U.S. Department of Homeland Security Additional Screening Measures

Effective July 19, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will require additional screening measures for travelers flying on international flights bound for the U.S. These screening measures pertain to any departure point where a passport is required to reenter the U.S.

Travelers flying to the U.S. from an international airport are encouraged to arrive to the airport at least three (3) hours prior to departure to allow time to clear security.

The enhanced security measures include but are not limited to:

  • Enhancing overall passenger screening;
  • Conducting heightened screening of personal electronic devices;
  • Increasing security protocols around aircraft and in passenger areas; and
  • Deploying advanced technology, expanding canine screening, and establishing additional preclearance locations.

We advise all our travelers to arrive at their international departure airport at least three hours prior to the departure time of their flight. Travelers are also encouraged to proceed promptly to their departure gate where additional screening may occur to avoid delay or missed flight.

pic grahamGraham Cooke“Unplugged from the past and rewired for the future.”  Wow!  When God does something, He does it with gusto!

Recently Jane Hansen Hoyt quoted a statement we first heard from Graham Cooke several years ago. “Identity is key to our transformation.” She went on to say, “You have to know your identity. You have to own it. You have to speak it. And you have to fully step into it.” Jane was speaking at the newly formed Central Region (Shelly Morales, Regional Director) meeting in Denver, CO. She spoke of the current day, end time war that we find ourselves in, “We are a military unit of His Presence. We are an active member of His Body. We are preparing the way for His return. A river of life is flowing out of Aglow because we know Whose we are! We have been outfitted by God for such a time as this!”

This year we are excited to announce that Graham Cooke will be joining us during our equipping time for leaders, Thursday, Nov. 10th beginning at 3 pm. Time will be short. Plan now to receive all God has for us as we continue to walk into the future as champions, warriors, and leaders of global significance!
