Arrived Safely

Grandparents arrived safely last night, everyone is a little tired today but the excitement of our reunion seems to be keeping us going. Sarah took her grandparents to school today for show and tell, she had a lot of fun with that.

We still have not found our camera so we apologize for tha lack of pictures. We have many things we would love to show you and will when we are able.

Grandma and Grandpa are coming TODAY!!!!!!!

There are some very excited girls in our house today awaiting the arrival of their Grandma and Grandpa Foss. The daily countdown is over and now it is down to hours.

A little note to let you know that Myah continues to gain more movement in her fingers and her shoulder, we are hoping that when her cast is removed this Friday that she will be able to move at her elbow as well.

This coming Saturday Tyler and I will be heading to Wisconsin for our conference with all of the missionaries who work with Kids Alive around the world. The focus of the conference is about Soul Care of missionaries in their country of service. We would ask you to pray for safety for us as we travel and also for Rick and Ruth as they care for our girls here in Peru. That this time would be enjoyable for all of them and that our girls would be obedient and respectful.

A Quick Update on Myah

We returned to the clinic today with Myah for her check up. When her cast was removed the doctor noted that the swelling had not gone down, this combined with the fact that Myah is still in a lot of pain when you touch her arm prompted him to put a new full cast on her for 10 more days. We are not sure what the problem is as three doctors were unable to see evidence of a break, but all agree there is something going on. We are glad that she is able to move her fingers, she also can move her arm at the shoulder, but she cannot move her elbow.
Thank you for your prayers on Myah's behalf.

Adventures with Myah

This past week Myah began going to the Cuna, soon to be renamed the "Oasis". Myah was becoming bored each afternoon while I was working with the moms. One day one of the teachers invited Myah to join her in her class while the kids were sleeping and they could colour together. Thus began Myah's love for the Cuna and everyday this week she has asked "when is it time for my school?" I am so glad that she likes it and I think she will have the best understanding of Peruvian culture of all of us.

Thank you for your prayers about us finding a "home" church here in Peru, we appreciate them and feel that the Lord has been leading us to where he wants us to be.

For the last several weeks we have been attending a small Baptist church in Manchay, with maybe 50 people. We have really enjoyed the teaching and the people have been so wonderful and welcoming. Last week the Sunday School classes resumed after the Summer break. Halfway through the service Myah goes to the Nursery with about three other kids. This morning she decided to climb on the small table, she fell off. She cried the whole way home. We took her to the Anglo-American CLinic where they x-rayed her arm but could not find any evidence of a break. However she continued to cry and could not move her arm even when we prompted her or tried to trick her into moving it. Because her arm was inflammed the Doctors decided it would be best to put her arm in a cast and re-evaluate her in a few days. So we will be going back on Tuesday with her.

We have written our latest newletter and hope to have it out to you this week, if you would like our newsletter, but currently don't receive it please leave us a comment on our blog and we will be sure that you receive one.

We also have some exciting ministry opportunities coming up, so be sure to check back for more details.

Have a delightful week.

We still can't find our camera, so we don't have any new pictures to post. We are counting down the days to Grandma and Grandpa Fosses arrival. They will be watching our girls for one week while Tyler and I attend a conference in Wisconsin with Kids Alive. When we return we will still have another three weeks to spend with them, everyone has a favourite place they want them to see.

Here I go to turn the house upside down again looking for our camera :-). Have a great day!
