Praises and Prayer Requests

Posted by: admin | Comments (2)

We definitely want to praise the Lord for many things!  The school is really a blessing!  The staff is wonderful!  They are so kind and loving and helpful.  They really love the Lord and feel it is their ministry to minister to missionaries.  The other families here are really great as well.  We feel blessed with this opportunity to get to know these people during this year.  We have already become close with a young couple who are going to serve in Nicaragua after completing the program.

The kids are doing well in their classes.  The first day, Micaiah cried the whole time and vomited several times.  The second day was much better the ladies said.  Now, she cries when we drop her off, but today when we picked her up, her teacher said that she talks a whole lot and repeats everything they say in Spanish back to them.  They only speak Spanish, so Micaiah will probably come back speaking the best Spanish!  Carson really likes his class and his teacher.  She is really funny with a wonderful personality.  He has made friends with some boys and really has not complained. We are so thankful that they are adjusting.

We do need prayer for Micaiah.  Before we left for Costa Rica, she was very ill with high fever.  It turned out that she had a bladder infection.  Our pediatrian had her tested for VUR, and she does have it.  It is a congenital condition where when she urinates, instead of the urine going down and out, it goes back up into the kidneys.  If there is any bacteria in the urine, her kidneys can get infected.  This can lead to not good things down the road.  Most kiddos grow out of it, and they put her on an anti-biotic daily to prevent infection.  We were told that if she got another infection, she would probably need corrective surgery.  Well, this past weekend, she got another infection.  We are going to see a pediatric urologist here to see what needs to be done.  The good news is that they can perform the surgery here, and the hospital is very good.

On Monday, my great-grandfather who is 93 had a massive heart attack and died twice.  They brought him back, but he is not doing well.  Please pray for my mother and my family and for him.  I will probably return alone for a few days because we feel that this would really be hard for the kids.

Thank you all again for you love and support!
