Wow – what a special day!! Almost 10 weeks since the last time I was in the States has left me a little homesick, exacerbated by the COVID-19 restrictions on travel and activity. And then on Sunday, the staff and kids surprised me with a song, nice lunch, beautiful posters, cake and candy! A very sweet home away from home moment on my first mother’s day apart from my (grown) children! One for the memory book!
We start this week with anticipation. The visit to the uncle’s home last week was very encouraging. The family is fully committed to taking care of the children, has an established relationship with them and is financially stable. We are so thankful for this provision and answer to prayer! Please join us in prayer for court this coming Friday where the judge will render his decision.
As for me, I am hoping to make a trip back to the States toward the end of the month and be back in Guatemala in late June, when, hopefully, schools will be open, travel restrictions mostly removed, and the long, hard road back to economic recovery will have started. As the Lord provides, we hope to participate in meeting the needs of those God brings across our path.
• Court on Friday, 5/15 – for the judge to allow the 3 children to be placed with their uncle
• Jackie to be able to go back to the States in late May and return to Guatemala in late June
• Provision to meet the needs of the orphanage
