Please Pray for our Family

Hi All,
It has been a very difficult time in our family these past few weeks. We are just trying to take one day at a time right now. These past weeks have felt like God is really far away. Everything is just been thrown up in the air and waiting for it to fall. We are really struggling with health and finances right now. Dad has been in and out of the hospital and is now in a rehab/nursing care facility for a short while. He has heart and lung problems. They said he will come home to hospice care.

Then on top of that our mother fell a week ago and broke her right wrist. So she is basically handicapped in the fact she can't do a lot with one hand. We have been doing our best to do what we can and be in three places at once along with work and taking care of our five furry babies. But we have had some wonderful, kind neighbors that have been bringing in meals at night. This really helps us greatly.

We still haven't heard anything about Krygyzstan but could hear something within the next few weeks. But we are wondering where the money will come from when the time comes for us to travel. We had hoped for bonus money, etc and now with the way our economy has been it's not looking good. We are really overwhelmed right now with everything.

The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9 kjv

I will say the same thing as 3peas there. I myself have been praying for you and your family. Hang in there my sister friend! Hopefully things will only get better.

Oh friends. I know this is hard and that you think God is nowhere to be found, but He is there in the midst of all of it, loving each of you, your parents and your daughters-to-be. I will be praying for you all. He will be much more clearly seen on the "other side" of all of this.
