Wanted to give you and update on Carmelo.  He was admitted to a hospital in Port-au-Prince. It is a very good hospital (and expensive), but I wanted to get the results of his test quickly and see what was going on with him.  He was admitted on Wednesday.  I think I let you know that he had pneumonia.  They also believe that he had dengue fever.   He was on IV fluids and medication for several day.  I went in each morning and spent the day with him.  Enoch spent the night with him.  He was released on Saturday.  He is still weak and tired.  Taking lots of naps.  We want to thank you all for your prayer and concern for him.

Tomorrow we are going to the USCIS office to file an I-130.  This is what we have to do for Carmelo to be able to be a US citizen and travel to the US with us.  We file it and then wait.  Will it be a week, a month, 6 months, a year?  I have heard from a week to a year.  Pray that all goes well tomorrow.  We really, really want to travel to the USA in the next few months.  Will you pray?

Matthew 21:21-22 (The Message)


 21-22But Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Yes—and if you embrace this kingdom life and don’t doubt God, you’ll not only do minor feats like I did to the fig tree, but also triumph over huge obstacles. This mountain, for instance, you’ll tell, ‘Go jump in the lake,’ and it will jump. Absolutely everything, ranging from small to large, as you make it a part of your believing prayer, gets included as you lay hold of God.”

    So glad to hear Carmelo is okay. We will pray for continued strength. We are so blessed to have a God who really cares about our needs. I will also be praying for Carmelo’s paperwork. Haven’t you tried for this before? I pray this time it will happen.
