Prayer Request...

Hey everyone... If you wouldn't mind, would you join us in asking God for some help? We're getting picked up tomorrow morning (Thursday) at 7AM to go to Bangkok to the US Embassy to hopefully get Kamin's visa. So we can all go home next week. Specifically we're asking God to keep us safe as we travel, for there to be no interference from the protests in the city, for an uneventful, quick processing of our paperwork and that it would be done within a few hours or at least within the day. Our older kids are spending the day with their aunt and cousin, so they won't have to be there and be bored, but it's a little strange to be separated from them for that long at this point. I'm also praying God will help me to not be overwhelmed with all the little details I'm afraid I'll forget... diapers, bottles, formula, snacks, toys, extra outfits, etc. necessary to keep a one year old happy through his naptime(s) in a strange crowded place. I'm depending on God's grace... and I'm a bit tired. But I'm glad my husband is with me and we have family here (so amazing...) and God is with me. And I know we'll make it... Off to bed... Thanks friends. : )

Love, Melissa

    Melissa, I'm praying for safety and for that visa.

  2. Of course we would pray! We all have been praying for you from the very start; we are so excited with this new chapter! I even asked our pastor and his wife to keep you in their prayers as you go through this journey!

    I may have missed this, but when is his birthday? He doesn't seem that much older than Zoey! We can't wait until SOMEONE *coughSAMcough* *coughJUSTINcough* get married out there so we can see all of you again!

    We love you all!
