A Reprieve!

The Bowersox family called today to check in and let us know how things are going in Liberia. We told them of all your prayers and good wishes and they want to send a big "Thank you" for your support. It has been a long week and they are expecting another long one coming up- but they are managing and looking forward to getting home again! Thankfully this weekend saw some reprieve from a few of their most pressing problems. They were able to get out and purchase the supplies they most needed (formula and diapers!). They also got a drum for Joshua. He loves it and spent most of day playing it. Apparently he is a very, very good drummer! (I am sure their neighbors will love that!) They took a picture of Patience dancing while Joshua played the drum. Today John (their Liberian missionary friend) came to take them all to church where Peter spoke and Becky completely freaked out a little Liberian boy who apparently had never seen a white person before!

Garty appears to be doing better with his illness but they think Joshua has an ear infection.

Please pray for them all this week- particularly for the Embassy appointment on Tuesday and for everyone's health.

Blessings to you all.

On the off chance that Peter and Becky are able to check their own blog, I spoke with Jim and he can file their tax extensions for them today - Monday April 16th.

I spoke with Becky this am and she sounded so excited!!! They had their embassy appointment moved to today and hope to get home sooner than Sunday. What a treat to get a call from Liberia - even if the call was necessitated by something as mundane as filing taxes.
