Pray for Us

Well, it's been a hard day here in Uganda! One of the main reasons is because we still don't have the written ruling. We have the embassy appt on Wednesday but we'll have to cancel it if we don't have the ruling. We went to the lawyers office and one of the ladies walked us over to the judge's secretary and she was sleeping! Did you hear me?! She was asleep at her desk. grrrr We asked when it would be ready and she said she didn't know, come back at 4. TIA (This is Africa)
If we don't get the appt at the embassy this week, it will be next week before we would get one and then the week after that before it would be finished. Trusting the Lord, but it doesn't make the wait any easier for a mom who hasn't been home in 8 weeks!

Also, to clarify...Thank you so much for your interest in helping us serve the orphanage here! There is one in a nearby village that literally has nothing! They get one meal a day if they're lucky and they sleep 3&4 to a bed. Many of the beds don't even have mattresses, just springs that they sleep directly on. Kim and I are going to take food, clothing, mattresses, soap, etc... to them. The kids can't even go to school because they are too dirty, since they can't wash their clothes and take baths.
I am amazed at your generosity already! Thank you so much to those of you who are willing to help us! I cannot wait to see their faces when we pull up with a car full of stuff for them.
Of course I will take tons of pictures for you all to enjoy and I will be telling them about you!
