It has been a very long couple of weeks away. We can't say thank you enough to those who prayed. We felt your prayers. It was such an encouragement to us to hear from so many as we trusted the Lord.
After working through some hard things these past two weeks, I can say that some big things have changed. The nightmares have subsided and I'm not anxious and twitchy anymore. I'm actually sleeping soundly again!!!! PRAISE GOD!! Especially the second week, I was feeling at home even in Nairobi. The Lord sent just the right people to come and work with me, he gave me a safe place to stay with friends, and my mom was able to come and stay with the kids while I was away. Even though this has been a hard time for us, this is also has been a time marked with the Lord's provision and his gentle care for me, and my family.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for standing with our family. We are so grateful.
