The team was not able to fly home tonight. They made it as far as Newark, New Jersey. The temperature was supposed to be

108 degrees in Newark today. The teams flight getting into Newark was late, so they missed their connecting flight to Seattle. They are staying the night in Newark and flying out around 7:00 in the morning. Please pray for safe travel and for all of us going down to Seattle to pick the team up.

Thank you for your prayers regarding signing the I600 adoption papers at the Embassy. They made it to the meeting and all of the paperwork needed at this time was signed. Yeah!

One story I forgot to share about, was that of a little girl with a hole in her heart. When our family doctor, Dr. Thomson was in Haiti 1 1/2 years ago, he and our Haitian doctor, Dr. Ralph, diagnosed a baby with a hole in her heart. Dr. Thomson tried to find a heart doctor in Washington that would perform surgery on her. Children's hospital said that too many people asked for surgeries to be performed for free so they were not able to help. Since that time another Doctor from either Canada or the US also diagnosed the little girl with a hole in her heart. The mother has been told that the child will not make it if she does not get surgery. The team was able to pray for her while they were in Haiti this time. Please pray that she will be healed or that God will make a way for her to get the needed surgery. We have doctors, and a host family, and we have been told that we would be able to get a medical visa if we had everything lined up and all involved would write letters, stating what they would do. It seems that all we are lacking is a hospital willing to allow the surgery. We would appreciate your prayers.

Blessings and thanks,
