Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

April 6: Update on Jonatán

We're thankful for another good night. Jona did start coughing this morning, however...

We continue to wait on the LORD for His best for us all.

We certainly appreciate your praying! Thank-you for leaving encouraging notes, too. Computer time is often limited these days, but we are encouraged as we read each note.

Praise the Lord with us! Esteban's sister and mother were given airline miles to purchase tickets and are scheduled to arrive in Greenville on Monday, April 11.

Not only was Julia granted a visa, she was given a ten-year visa! God answered exceeding abundantly above anything we could ask or even think! (Ephesians 3)

Please pray that we would be able to arrange earlier flights for them. We've been in daily contact with the airlines, but representatives insist that the earliest available flights out of Uruguay are on Sunday, April 10. (Does anyone have "connections" with United Airlines?!)

Please continue to pray for strength for Jona – and for restful sleep, especially at night.

We are thankful for God's good hand on our lives; we praise Him for His sustaining grace, and we know He will continue to deal mercifully with us. We are believing His good words:

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. (Psalm 136)

Tell Jona that Ali and Skylor's mom says hi and that I pray for him everyday (and usually shed a couple of tears!). We got to "hang out" with Jona during the Christmas break--went bowling with the Ruedas and Jona and a few other kids. Jona will never know how much he has influenced his friends and the student body in general. Tell him that when Skylor gets home from New York, he wants to come see him! (Thanks so much for your updates.)
