It is not very often that I feel the need to post about prayer needs, but this morning as I wait for it to get light enough to run I just can't get these few things off my mind.
First, three weeks ago Colin was trying to remove one of the Land Rover's tires so to fix a flat. Here in Soroti you have to bring a tire iron and a jack if you want your tires fixed and you have to remove the tire and put it back on. While he was doing this he managed to hurt his back. Now three weeks later sitting, laying down, and driving are all painful, to the point where he physically looks like he is in pain. Please pray for healing for him. We really have no other way than the healing power of God in this matter.
Second and lastly, the NGO board has not met in about two months and our paper work for our work visa is sitting on their desk. With the holidays coming it could be another month before they do meet. Please just pray that our paper work does go through when they come together and the rest of the process is simple. Having our work visa will allow us to attain legal guardianship of Silas and we can then work on getting him a passport so he can travel with us. It also means that we will not have to leave country every six months, and at this point if we have to leave Silas can not go with us.
Thanks for all the prayers that are already offered up on our behalf. We hope everyone enjoys the holiday season!
