(Last week I did go to our house and I did some packing.)
God sent 16 people (including our and Jimmy's children) to help move our things. PRAISE GOD! Phillip rented a big truck. 4 or so guys showed up to help that were friends of the truck driver. Phillip said they were WORKERS and were a huge help! Since I was so sick, Farly and her Mom took our children (except Mary) and went in my place and told the workers where to put things in our new house.
The Lord has been good to us. Jimmy's family and parents have been DEAR to us!
We are working hard to get settled into our new home, and God helped us to get a lot done today!! In the mean time Jimmy's family (where we have been staying) is allowing us to spend a couple more nights with them while we finish things at our house. (We had to get rid of a lot of things like our kids' mattresses, our living room furniture and woven rug, etc. due to the mold. So, it will take us a few days to get new ones, etc. We couldn't chance having tons of mold around Elijah again!)
(We certainly didn't have plans to come back to Colombia, throw all this away and buy more again, but God knows!)
I know that the only way we made it through the recent trials which have come our way is through God and the prayers of His people! Thank you for your part in praying for us!!
I must go and get some sleep, for tomorrow there are lots more boxes to unpack, organizing to do, etc., but we are enjoying our new home! =)
