Sunday, and Monday
Today was church day and this Sunday it was not raining so the climb down the hill was not as bad. The kids were excited about going to church and went off to S.S. A little later they showed up in church with us and stayed the rest of the service. We totally enjoyed the service and Pastor Ron who is 70 years old and who started this ministry, arrived in town on Saturday and preached this morning. After church we headed back up the hill and coming down was this cute little girl probably 8 years old carrying her baby sister and other small siblings following her. One little girl, who was about 2 years old, dressed in her finest was pulling up the rear of the group. She fell and started crying. My first instinct was to run and scoop her up and comfort her. She stopped crying and I took her and placed her beside her sister, so she could hold onto her walking down. We also had a group of children follow us back to the house and they ended up playing with Andrew and Allen. Andrew and Allen brought playdough out. These kids had never seen it before and totally enjoyed playing with it. Every Sunday evening the missionaries have a fellowship and so all the missionaries that are in town get together for supper and enjoy each others company. They invited us and we had a great time getting to know them better. Well, that about finishes up this day and I am ready to go to bed. The kids went to bed quietly tonight again!!!! Tomorrow we hope to hear some good news that they found Karneaza.

Well, I didn't sleep too much last night but had a good night. I spent a lot of it in prayer for things that need to come to pass this next week. God has been so faithful through many things and I believe he will come through for us and these children. He has been showing me in His Word that he loves the fatherless and will keep his promise to them to give them hope and to care for them.
I look forward to see God's hand move in all of this. For what seems impossible to man is nothing to God! What an awesome God He is.
