     For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his
 name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
 The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

We're HOME!!!!!!!!

Anna and the baby

Naptime at our friends' house

After being gone for nearly six weeks, it's so wonderful to be home and see my family again. It's funny the things that you notice after being away for a long time. Ah.. our clock on the wall. Our nice white counter. Our pretty living room. Talking on the phone to my family is not nearly as good as being with them.

The people we visited now have another sweet boy!! The mother was in labor for three days (she's a strong lady), but the baby never dropped, so she had a c-section. Although we prayed for a natural birth, the Lord was taking care of her by allowing the c-section to happen, because they discovered that she was bleeding inside, and didn't have much time left. So, to make a long story short, she almost died and is still recovering from the c-section, and on top of that the second surgery to find an stop the bleeding ( Prayers for their family would be very much appreciated!).  They still need help, but we needed to come home.  Daddy said it was going to be a long time before he let us go anywhere that long or that far again. :)
