I know these are the times that there is only one set of Footprints because I know God is carrying my family and I right now. Even though we know it is time we have been told that we should put my Momma in a nursing home. The pain that I feel is a pain that cannot be measured. You are never too old to need your Momma. Is it possible to feel like you are going to just break? So we are searching.....How can this be happening? My Mom is only 66 years old! My Mom and Daddy will not grow old together, she won't know Franceska, I have to leave her with strangers, my momma will not be at home ...my home anymore. I could go on and on. I am sorry that I am not "happy" tonight. I really need all of your prayers for my family, please pray for me to be brave and strong, I feel like a little girl right now . I'm sorry I am just so , so, sad. There is so much good in our lives but this is just so hard.

They are home!!! FIRST...Thank you God for taking care of them and bringing them home safely. These girls came home forever changed. They saw poverty and sadness that I have yet to see in my life.They went and did what HE asks us to do, they went and taught people about him, spread the word, and even taught children how to ask God into their hearts. I am in awe of both of these girls. They have such hearts for Jesus and his word. The group of peers that they were put together with from all over the country was certainly a blessing from God. It was as if they had all known each other forever and they also formed friendships that they will have for a lifetime. It was so hard to let her go, but how do you say no to a calling from God??? Listening to our daughter and Emily talk of their experiences is truly amazing. And I can safely say that our daughter Astrud will be a missionary for the rest of her life, so I better get use to it. Thank you to all of our family, friends, church family and all of my precious friends in Blogland for your thoughts and prayers, it was truly felt during their absence. Words are not adequate, thank you so much from the depths of my heart. God bless all of you.
