It's been one week since we got home and it's been a pretty good week. We are actually now into week two. Other than getting over some serious jet-lag, we have gotten an appointment for Jack at the St. Louis Children's Hospital. He will see the chief gastroenterologist there on March 24th. We wish he could get in sooner than that but we're thankful that we got in that soon and not in 3 months time. We also got an application in to an organization that loans vehicles to missionaries home on furlough. We will call them today, actually, to see if they will be able to help us in this way. We'd appreciate your prayers that we can get a vehicle soon, whether through them or another avenue.
Jack celebrated his 3rd birthday last Wednesday. Due to being in the thick of jet-lag still, we only celebrated with pancakes for breakfast (candles included) but this Saturday will be the big party! We don't have much planned till the appointment. This is difficult for us in some ways; sitting still is not easy. We will be having some meetings with folks from our member care department and will get together with our Pastor and his wife. We aren't sure what God has for us during this time home except for getting Jack's health cared for. Please pray that if God has things for us to do while we are home, that we would be sensitive to His leading and that we can perhaps be a blessing to others.
We'll check in again soon!
