No passports this week either! Please be praying for passports! There are many families in the same boat as us, and so many kids that need to come home. We pray Lord that your favor would flow in and through the passport office and that many would be released!!
I will not write much because my heart is heavy and I can't seem to stop the river of tears. This last leg is by far the worst for me so far. We thought we would have our kids home by now, even though we know better. Then, the other night we went to see the Watoto African Childrens Choir, and I cried through the whole thing. Mainly because Jeff and I have been to Africa 3 times, and have been praying about moving our lives there since we've been married, 5 years. Hearing the children's Ugandan accents just brought me back to all the little faces we have seen, held and prayed for over the years. And now to top it off, we have 2 little faces of our own that we still do not have in our arms. It was a beautiful night, but a reminder of the deep love God has placed in us for our brothers and sisters in Africa, and a longing still unfilled.
So, I thought I would post a few of my favorite photos from our trips to East Africa.
Well, I thought I would do this but our internet connection basically sucks! (sorry for the strong language)... I'm just bummed because I LOVE photos. I'm a visual person. I'll continue to try to post some good pics anyway!! Okay... well, it's not working. Now for the first pic of our kids!!! I can't wait to hold them, hug them, hear their voices, kiss them and finally be a family!!!
