We have been singing a song from Barney for the past couple days. If you have children, and your children liked Barney, then you may know the song, but for those of you that don't know, here's a YouTube video of the song so you can get it stuck in your head the same way it is stuck in mine.
God answered prayers with Michael's knee as well. He is able to put off surgery and return with a knee brace. We praise God for this answered prayer.
We are excited to return to Guinea Bissau, but at the same time we know we will face homesickness and long to be back in our home culture. We are blessed to have been able to spend this time home. We have been able to see so many people that we love and have prayed over us, we got to spend time with our family, and be here for births, birthdays and holidays. These memories will help to get us through when the homesickness sets in.
Our home church has been amazing and we are blessed to be a part of it. Most recently, the children's ministry has put together a 'store' for children to purchase items needed for our preschool in our village.
We realize that we are always saying thank you, but we cannot say thank you enough. Thank you to all of you that have prayed for us, been friends to us, fed us, clothed us, housed us, help provide for our physical needs, encouraged us, laughed with us, cried with us, the list goes on, but in the end we continue to say, "Thank you!". We can never pay you back, but our Lord will bless you.
