Day 3 & 4- Rehabilitation- According To His Purpose

Day three and four updates posted together today because, well I fell asleep and didn't post last night.  

Wyatt had a great day on day three.  He only walked in the afternoon, and did a Lego/brick builders activity in the afternoon.  Wyatt is only one of four English speaking kids here this time around, the rest of the kids are from Panama.  Wyatt was paired with a Spanish speaking teenager, so the fact that they wear able to get anything done right is amazing. He and this young man now play video games in the teen lounge during their down time. It amazes me that friendship can cross even language barriers. 

Today (day 4) we got the not so good news- as much as we were hoping for a two week stay, Shannon feels like it's going to be 4 weeks.  We were both pretty bummed out about it, but like I told Wyatt, we knew it was a possibility.  

And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. 
Romans 8:28 

So, while we both wanted this to be a quick stay, we know there is a reason, and a purpose for being here.  As hard as it is, I am thankful for cell phones, FaceTime, and Facebook.  It helps pass the time, and keep the homesick at bay.  

We are headed home for the weekend,but will coming back with a head and heart ready to work hard. 

John 11:4 


  1. Praying for a speedy recovery and for time to fly by while away from home.

  2. Praying for you both, God's got ya!
