Well the girls and myself said “goodbye” to Becca this afternoon. It was a very difficult goodbye. I had both girls in my arms and they were both sobbing. They still don’t understand that their mommy is gone for a long time. Every time our dog barks they think she’s home, or they tell me she’s sleeping. This is going to be a long 17 days.
Becca, Natali, Neomi and myself want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This time of year is hard for us as we are away from our families, but we praise the Lord for all His blessings! What a great thing it is to be able to celebrate Christ birth anywhere in the world and on any day of the week!
Yesterday I went and talked to the judge myself. He was very nice and honest with me. He told me that even if he were to give us permission (which would be difficult) that it would still be 2 or 3 months until we hear something. We are discouraged but we know God has a purpose in everything.
Here are some pictures from Berea Club this morning:
Praise the Lord for a great kids club this morning! We didn’t have a place to meet so we had Berea Club on a soccer court. It was fun! I played soccer with the boys and Becca played different games with the girls. We had snack, did a Christmas craft,
and gave away candy canes. Praise the Lord 20 children came! It was encouraging to see the kids that came and we had a great time.
