 Thanks for all you prayers.

This is what the Lord did:

We made it to the city in 6+ hours {2 hours less than we anticipated}. The roads were much better due to less rain this past week.

We got to the "passport photo shop" before it closed.

We found a wonderful guesthouse {and they even reduced their price a bit--a blessing with eleven children}.

We had an appointment at the Embassy first thing this morning.

The manager of the guesthouse, a friend from our old church in the city, was willing to look after the majority of the children so we did not have to drag all of them along to the Embassy--Eryn stayed behind to help.

 The consular was understanding.

The paperwork was simple and straightforward.

We only had to pay $105.


We picked up this handsome boys  new "limited" passport at 
2 pm this afternoon!!!

Please pray for a safe journey home--we will leave first thing in the morning. For order/peace as I prepare the house/children to leave in just five days. Please also pray for continued provision as we did not budget for this trip.

"Thou openest thine hand, and they are filled with good."  
Psalm 104:28


Zane just called from the auto shop--our car needs a major break repair {a job neither mechanic has ever encountered}.  Would you please pray for extra provision for these repairs and yet another nights accommodation at the guesthouse {this little 'quick trip' is becoming a VERY expensive trip}.  

With that said, I must remember that God has our good in mind and His hand is in everything.  Who knows, the vehicle could have been unsafe to drive, causing an accident {which the mechanics were quick to mention}?!

Oh how the Lord loves His children so.
