Back to Uganda :)

Scott and I received word on Monday that our court date has been set for October 1st. We are heading back to Uganda. We will be leaving on Monday so pray we have no flight delays. We will arrive in Uganda at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday and have to be in court the next morning. This is the final trip the one we have been waiting for, Bennett will be coming home. We have been told it can take as long as three weeks to get all the legal stuff done. Praying for a quick turn around but we know God is in control and His timing is perfect.
I spoke with Pastor Dickson yesterday Bennett seems to be doing fine except for the polio shot he received is making him a little cranky. "OUCH"
Please continue to pray for favor with all whom we come in contact with especially government officials those who are directly involved in getting Bennett home.
Also keep our children lifted, they are excited but also sad to see Scott and I leaving again so soon. They have been the real hero's through all of this. Colton, Haley and Hannah have been very supportive of us and they have rose to the challenge of taking care of each other and their responsibilities while we are away. I am so proud of them.
Also remember to pray for my mom...she will be joining us on the 9th, she likes to fly about as much as I do :( so pray for a safe trip for her as well. Scott will be coming home a little early so mom will stay and return home with Bennett and I. Praise God for that I won't be alone in Uganda.
Pastor tells me his internet is working this time so hopefully we will be able to update blog daily.
I love you all and will miss you. Can't wait to see all your faces when I step off that plane with our bundle of joy.

Many Blessings

So glad you guys are leaving to bring your baby home. Plan on five weeks not three, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but three weeks is only if everything goes PERFECT and as planed. It is possible but not likely. Have a great time, and remember this will be much like labor. You are going to hurt, you are going to be exhausted, you will probably puke...but once it is over you will forget all the pain, and want to do it all over again. Your family will be in our prayers.

God's smile radiates through you as His Son shines within you. Never forget that he is close at heart and guideing you every step of the way. I know everything is happening in HIS timing so no matter how quick or how long it is, it is because He says so and has a bigger plan and purpose than we could ever hope think or imagine.

We LOVE you guys SOOO much and will miss you but the joy you are bringing home will be worth your journey.

Hope leads you God's Hand guides you and Love will bring you home.
