Four More Weeks

I took Ben to the hand specialist today for a re-check of his broken hand. The doctor was pleased with the range of mobility and said to "rest" that hand for one more month and then consider it healed. I am trying to be positive and upbeat about it, because, frankly, Benji has had a better attitude about it than I have! He's not complained or whined, even when the splint was on, and he has really handled it so maturely for a very, very active 6 y/o boy! He did hope to go to his basketball class tonight and showed a little sadness when I reminded him what the doctor said this morning (no basketball, hockey, tobogganing, etc.).

I realized today that we didn't specifically take any "Ben-broke-his-hand-let's-mark-this-event-with-a-picture" photo, but here are a couple that were taken when he did have the splint on a week or two ago...

And an update on Bob...I heard from him yesterday and they had spoken at a couple of meetings and had seen God change lives! He also mentioned that they had met with the 40 orphans and the people who have been caring for them. His comment 'beautiful people' just makes me want to hop on a plane and get to Kenya right this minute! But, I'll be patient and wait for pictures and stories later. I'm sure I'll post a few here when he gets home. In the meantime, please continue to pray for the team. There has been some sickness and spiritual opposition. God is bigger and is going to have the victory! I am believing Him and trusting Him for wonderful and amazing adventures for Bob and the others!!!
