We had two things we would like to share with you. One, is so that you can help us pray this week.
First of all, we would like to thank everyone for helping us pray for our little baby Elizabeth (Ellie is what we are calling her for short). Also for praying for Jessica. Jessica has been very sore after the surgery but otherwise is still doing ok. As you read in our last email, Ellie is a miracle baby. We give ALL the credit to God and to the prayers of His people!
Yesterday, both Jessica’s and Ellie’s doctors gave them permission to come home from the hospital. So, as soon as we could get the hospital bill paid, we did exactly that. Here you must pay the bill in full before they will allow you to leave. Both Jessica and Ellie seem to enjoy being home.
Now, for the prayer request. Jessica’s mother is supposed to arrive this Saturday morning to see her new and first grandchild. While she comes, she is bringing many supplies with her. Some items we can’t find here and some that are a lot better quality and cheaper to buy in the states and bring here. Please help us pray that these items arrive safely. Also, pray that she is able to get through customs with the these bags without being stopped or any other trouble. With the items she is bringing, if they check the bags, we are likely to have to pay to get them out of customs. This could get expensive.
Again, thank you to each and everyone of you that have and do pray for us. God has definitely heard and answered your prayers in the past few months.
