Update on Brett

Just in case you were wondering....I've talked with Brett several times during their survey trip to Burkina Faso, Mali, and Northern Togo. The guys bought a phone chip for one of their cell phones and have been sharing the cost to communicate with their wives and children. It's been great! Even though we don't get to talk very long, it's always good to hear each other's voices and know everyone is o.k.

They've had some good interviews with people in Mali and are on their way back through Burkina Faso. I'm anxious to hear all the different stories about people they encountered. Please be praying for Brett's strength. They haven't had good rest at night and then he has been driving his group around all day. So often we get sick when our bodies are too tired, please pray for his health as well.

We've made it half way through our time apart from Daddy and Caden seems to be taking it well. Although, I can tell he's a bit confused when we look at pictures of Brett. His first reaction is pure delight and he points and says, "Dada" and then his face turns serious like he's realizing he hasn't seen his Daddy in awhile. Thank you for all your prayers and your support!

I am so thankful things have been going so well for Brett, and for you and Caden too! We have been constant in remembering you guys in prayers this last week, and will add Brett's health to the list. How nice that you have been able to talk to him like you have!
