Birthday In A Box

Our home church prayer group sent us a “Birthday party in a box” and they thought of everything and I mean, EVERYTHING.  It was such a blessing.

Jon and The Littles prep for the party.

You all know how difficult it was for me to leave The Littles to go to language school, particularly with someone I didn’t know. God has provided an incredible woman, Weynshet who loves our girls dearly and watches them during the mornings.

This whole picture should be in parentheses, but I need to include that Weynshet has been so wanting The Littles hair braided as opposed to loose and bouncy and she spent a Saturday with us, braiding these girls’ locs.

I didn’t take many party pictures, but the moments were sweet.

Musical chairs

 The Littles (and Jon and I) have been feeling the love as they celebrated their birthday.Their party was a sweet night of praising God for what He has done in our lives. The night ended with worship songs and then a prayer of blessing, a pastor from Burundi blessed them in French and then an American pastor prayed an English blessing over The Littles.

Can’t wait to see what year four brings.
