fevers and stomach aches have hit us now, and we're battling another round of some bug. it's no wonder, as almost everyone we know and are in contact with has some bug they're fighting. my current light-headedness may or may not be due to the amount of lysol i've doused throughout our home this afternoon. i'm sure to land sometime soon. the homeboundness brings rest though, and we're taking full advantage.
in prep mode for an upcoming missions trip, we are preparing our support letters. we are excited for the opportunity to go to Nicaragua this coming May. having never gone with our whole family, we cannot wait to work side by side in this ministry. the boys are busy planning skits for the children in orphanages and praying for their hearts to realize Jesus as their Savior. one of my sons asked if perhaps we raised enough support, could we bring home a baby sister? if it were only that easy. we are confident of this though, God will allow us to love the children while we're there, and we're praying He'll show some real way of helping them in the future days to come. my second born is already dreaming up ideas of some day opening an orphanage or adding to an existing one. wouldn't that be grand for God to use him in such a capacity? whatever dreams he dreams, i pray they're always for God.
so addressing envelopes we are. doing our part to help the mail carriers work load this coming week. praying and trusting God for the amount needed for this trip. He is able!
