Update 2: Daniel and the children arrived safely around 4:00 pm this morning. My dad is taking me out to where we'll all be staying in a bit. :) Thank you sooo much for praying for our safety as we traveled separately.
Also, I was able to see the doctor yesterday...looks like I will be staying here for a while. I'll post about the appointment later.
Update: I arrived safely at my parents home late last night. Daniel and the children are about 2 hours south of the US border and should be here late tonight/early Tuesday morning. I'm waiting for the Dr. to call back with my appt. I miss my hubby and babies but am so thankful the Lord has kept us all safe thus far. :)
Again, I just want to thank you all so much for praying. I wish I had the time to share how the Lord is so clearly leading thus far. When I get overwhelmed with the countless details that lie ahead, He so gently reminds me how He's cared for us so far...every little detail. I am reminded of how He's taken us through trial after trial...and oh how much He loves us! I just need to trust and rest in Him.
This is just a quick update before I unplug and pack up the computer. Tomorrow will be a busy day as we pack up, hold our special Christmas service/fellowship meal, and then immediately leave to take me to the airport. I will not have the computer with me as I cannot lift very much. I'm bringing my purse and Noah lent me his backpack so I could bring my Bible and a change of clothes to tie me over until Daniel arrives with the children and the rest of our luggage.
I am not sure when I will have internet access next, so do not worry if you do not hear from us for a while. The Lord is holding us in His ever merciful, loving hands. We do appreciate your prayers and have been so encouraged by each sweet comment and email sent. God bless you for blessing our "little" :) family.
Daniel called a while ago and told me that they were able to pass out most of the Christmas shoeboxes and will pass out the rest tomorrow to the children who come to the service. Pictures and update will be posted as soon as I am able!
Well, it is late and I need to oversee the packing for 13 (soon to be 14) people for what may be an extended stay. How do you do that while on bedrest? :) The Lord is so good! May you all have a blessed day in Him! And if you don't hear from me beforehand....MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! love, Daniel and Jaynee, Timothy, Elijah, Rebekah, Benjamin, Abigail, Isaiah, Josiah, Noah, Susannah, Nehemiah, Eliseo, and Baby Boy :)
