Happy Mother's day!!

Today for Mother's Day Comfort and I got up and jumped in a taxi and headed off to church. What a funny thing to be with one child out of eight on Mother's Day. I miss my other kids soooo much!! However I did find a couple of wonderful Mother's Day cards tucked into my luggage and I got a text from my family telling me that they love me and miss me. I did hear that they had a party Friday night. They said it was for Nathan's birthday, but I'm wondering if it's because mom's away????
Church was great! The worship was awesome and the word was really good. The Pastor spoke about not trusting in man, but trusting God in your circumstances. Hmmmm. Was that for me? Then after church Daniel caught a taxi for us and when it pulled over I thought what a junker it was then Daniel said "This is not a nice taxi" but off I went and on the way the tire blew out and we went into oncoming traffic and barely escaped a crash. So there I was on the side of the road with a broken taxi. I asked the driver to flag down another taxi and he did and then he started to negotiate a price with him, wanting to make sure he got his fair share (he had asked for 6 Ghana Cedis and wanted to take four and give the other driver two) so I paid him and said not to worry, I would pay the other driver too. Crazy system!
I'm really glad I have people praying for me because it really is dangerous here.
Tomorrow we meet the orphanage director at the embassy to file the last paper and pick up the passports (which are suppose to be finished-pray, pray, pray) and then it's home free (after the visa medicals and visa approvals).
See you soon!!
Oh, if you haven't checked out Laurel's blog you can look at it here. She has pictures of my Mother's Day dinner (which Comfort ate--and loved! I wanted to eat it but I chickened out, I don't like to have tummy problems) and pictures of me and Comfort.

My dad also left me a similar message today as we are at Children's for our daughter right now, "Greater is He that is in us, than he who is in the world." I will continue praying for you as you trust in Him. I am so glad to hear that you are safe after that taxi ride and lastly, Happy Mother's Day!

This is a Mother's day you will never forget! I have rug burns on my knees from praying about passports lately. I LOVED the picture of you and Comfort, she makes me smile :)
