On the morning of March 8, 2014, A Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers just disappeared. It has now been 8 days, and the plane and its passengers are still missing.

The pilot and the co-pilot’s homes have been searched. The crew has been investigated.

Yet, no one can prove what happened to it.

Data systems and transponders just shut down at the same time. Either somebody turned off the systems or electrical failure caused it.

The military thinks that radar blips and satellite pings show that the plane flew for up to 4 hours after the transponders and data systems turned off. This means that the plane may not have crashed into the ocean.

Phillip Wood, a 51 year old IBM executive and American was on the flight.

Prayers and heartfelt wishes are being shared over social media and in congregations hoping for the return of the 239 safely back home.
