Feeling Better!

Thank you for praying! Right now I am watching my sweet girl play baseball on the Wii. She is trying to beat the high score and get the gold medal. I would have sent her to school as I think the puking was situational (heat, lots of juice and ice cream) and not viral, but she didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night, so she's home for the day. Darin was up on and off until 4 throwing up and just looking and sounding wretched, but this morning he took some Tylenol and drank some Mountain Dew and headed off to Pretoria to bring Fetsie to school. All that to say, I think the puke fest is over!

I am also feeling a lot better, physically and emotionally. I am attributing it all to the power of prayer. My cold is on it's way out, which helps a great deal, but the other stuff is still there, it just isn't pressing in on me quite so hard. I know that is due to God's grace and His loving kindness, but I've heard from many of you who are lifting me up in prayer and I thank you for that.

Happy Monday to you all!

Prayers Please

It is Sunday night, just after 9. We had a fantastic day, meeting with different friends from various organizations all dedicated to the care of orphaned and vulnerable children. We talked a lot, we ate a lot and we prayed hard. So, most of our day was great. Unfortunately, Darin started feeling not quite right when most of our guests had left, so he crashed on our bed. Then, at about 6, Jori threw up. A lot. Then Darin threw up. Jori fell asleep and threw up again at around 8:30, but I've lost track of how many times Darin has been sick. So, we are praying that NO ONE else gets sick and would appreciate your prayers for that as well. 

Could you also please pray for Mama Mina, who has worked here at Tshepo ya Bana for many, many years. Her husband, Jack, passed away today after many years of suffering from a stroke. 

Thank you for standing in the gap for all of us here!
