WINFIELD — Winfield missionary Mark Posey was woken by explosions around 5:30 in the morning on Thursday, Feb. 24. He got a call and answered his phone. It was his friends letting him know it was time to go. Russia was invading Ukraine.
Posey had originally planned to leave that day, but all flights had been canceled since the airport was now in the line of fire. He tried to reschedule a flight for the next day, but it was also cancelled.
