The Beach


Today we went to the beach!! We needed a day of fun and this beach was beautiful. The top picture is of Maggie and Daniel (our new best friend, he is Ghanaian and has rescued us when we were lost, shown us the town, helped us buy food and change money-he has been a real life saver). Of course Maggie has a group of kids following her as always. The bottom picture is of Kelcey, Maggie and Daniel playing in the water. They had a lot of fun.
The best news though is that we spoke to the embassy today and they said they were aware of our situation and awaiting our arrival with our paperwork. They also said, due to Comfort's health, they should have no problem getting us home in time for her appointment April 15th. That means maybe even by the end of the week. All of this is contingent on court tomorrow!! We need all of our paperwork signed and complete in order for the embassy to be able to process our applications. A good friend told me that our God is a God of 11th hour miracles and we are praying for that.
Thank you to everyone who is praying. We have at times lost hope, but have been uplifted by the prayers. We just need to remember to walk by faith, not by sight. God is in control, there is no other explanation. We also have some interesting miracles to share later!!

Thanks for the post! You must have been pretty tired as you made the post so late!

Glad you had some fun at the beach and also thankful for the word from the Embassy. Hopefully they work on US time, vs Ghanaian time! We're praying for your court date tomorrow, the I600 and Visa applications.

Can't wait to hear the miracles! Hope you're writing them down so you can remember them!

Love you,
Sheri

Thank you for taking the time to keep us all posted. I check twice a day, hoping for good news. YAY! We got some today!
It's going to happen. God would not have taken you this far. He just wouldn't. He knows how important this is for the kids, for all of us.
This is going to be so good for this family. Thank God for what you are bringing us.
You are our heroes.
