This is My Prayer

I took a chance and sent our e-mail to the Embassy in Accra requesting a visa appointment. I was pleasantly surprised when I received an e-mail back with a confirmed appointment for NEXT MONDAY at 7:30 a.m. (1:30 a.m. our time). I am actually starting to get excited thinking this really is going to happen!

Here is my prayer:
There is another family who's daughter should be ready to travel home around the same time. Her husband, however, is deployed overseas and she is at home caring for multiple little ones. She cannot travel, but I can. It would be a HUGE blessing for us both for me to be able to escort her daughter home. They would cover half of my airfare and pay for our hotel/meals during the trip. I cannot stress enough how much of a HUGE blessing this would be since we are about $1,000 short for our travel expenses. I have been praying for God to provide and this just might be a great answer to prayer!

Soon baby girl...soon.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but remembering our homecoming trips, I can tell you - you'd be earning that money. :)

But it would be such a trip to remember!

I hope that other poor mom has a lot of support at home.
