Viaje de Amor en Ingles

(A Journey of Love)

Thank you for your prayers!  We asked you to pray for our lawyer as she traveled to the city of our children's birth to get new birth certificates.  We asked you to pray that they had the paper, ink and other supplies needed to print the birth certificates.  Our lawyer left Tegucigalpa early this morning and found the office in a small village in the northern part of the country around 10am.  The good news was that there was electricity, but she had to wait for someone to arrive at the office.  By the end of the day, someone had arrived and they had the necessary supplies.  She now has the new birth certificates, and she said that we will go to the immigration office on Monday, which is different from what she told us yesterday.  The change in our timing resulted from the fact that the people in the little town had never done this before so they had to call into Tegucigalpa to find out what to do, so now we are already in the system and can go earlier than expected.  We will have a quiet weekend in Santa Lucia, and then we begin a whirlwind of activity on Monday.

Today, was a day of cleaning the apartment.  We found that the kids are great workers.  I was cleaning the bathroom while the kids were playing, and I had stepped out for some reason, when I came back in, there was Alia with the toilet brush scrubbing the toilet, which I had just finished.  Then, they both wanted to help with banging the dirt out of the carpets and sweeping and mopping the floors.  This filled our morning and early afternoon.  Then, we all rested...

Tonight, we went with a mission team from the US that Carlos is connected with to Picacho, the statue of Jesus that overlooks the city of Tegucigalpa.  We had the opportunity to go here during the day last July, but this gave us the chance to see it at night.  It was awesome for the kids to see all of the lights of the city from that vantage point.  It was a great day, and we are encouraged to see how the children continue to grow in their trust of us.  At the same time, we see that there is a sense of confusion and trying to figure things out.  We need to remind ourselves to be patient, and that this is a marathon - not a sprint.
