We have been showered with blessings upon blessings these last few days. To begin, prayers were answered as Guerlens was able to have another CT scan! The day after I posted asking for prayer for Guerlens, Frentz met a man at the gym who worked at a hospital with a CT scan machine. He talked with the director of surgeries for us and she gave us her personal phone number. I walked right up to the gate of the hospital where she met us and we were in and out in less than an hour. (This is absolutely nothing short of God's hand. If you have been to a hospital in PAP you would know when you go, you plan to spend all day!) The man doing the scan was very helpful and also gave us his contact information to call him if we ever need anything in the future. They gave us an appointment for 8:00am on October 27th where we will meet with doctors flying in from Miami to go over the results. If he needs an operation that they are able to do, they will schedule him in during that week. If not, at least we will know what we are dealing with!
On Friday afternoon we picked up a team from Crosspointe Church. We spent all morning at Les Bours School of Hope painting the courtyard. Between the new stairs, the cement, and the paint it is looking quite fabulous! We went with a deeper shade of green to match the new uniforms. (Go Green, Go White!)
While we were painting, Gerlande came over with Jouvenika. This sweet little girl, born in April, has stolen my heart from the first day I met her. She reminds me so much of Jivenson...her eyes, her tongue, her snuggles. Today Gerlande brought her over to show me a large sore on her leg. She had been to several hospitals, but nothing she was given seemed to he helpful. The sore is deep and nasty. She seems to tolerate the pain, except while we were cleaning it out. Please pray for her health and healing. I am thankful to get to snuggle her over the next few weeks, but I wish it was under better circumstances!
The kids are all looking forward to going to church tomorrow! After church Guerlik and Mika are coming over for Guerlik's birthday party! He will be turning 5! We'll be celebrating in the pool with cake and music! Wish you all could be here.
Please pray for continued safety, especially as we travel to Les Bours (Monday and Wednesday). The situaiton along Route Neuf is becoming more dangerous. We are only able to be in the area during the morning hours. On Monday we will be finishing our painting and on Wednesday we will be making 500 peanut butter sandwiches for our school kids and children in the area. Pray for all of our kids and their families to keep from harm.
I cannot thank you enough for your continued support! It takes all parts of the body to complete Christ's work. YOU are a very important part! Lives are being changed because of your prayers and donations! God Bless You!
