This blog has been quiet for a long time, I know. It's just that things have been going on and I haven't felt like sharing for a little while. Overall, we have many reasons to be thankful - Church work is going well, and on Friday Ian and Nadia and children could arrive back. It was wonderful to see the children playing happily again together as if they had never been apart.
However, as family we are dealing with some anxiety and worry at the moment. A few weeks back we were overjoyed to find out that we were expecting another baby. However a week or so ago it became clear that all was not well. On Monday we went to Ukarumpa (for work and dentist treatment) and while I was there I also visited the medical clinic and they did a scan. Unfortunately the scan showed that it appears that the baby has died already. However, it is a just being called a threatened miscarriage at this stage, called so because the machine is old and not very accurate so it is just slightly possible (and it has happened before) that the machine made a mistake... But as the days wear on the small glimmer of hope is fading as the miscarriage symptoms continue.
We rest assured, however, that God knows what He is doing, and, yes, we are still praying for a miracle, however unlikely that seems to be. But we are praying especially that we may find peace and accept this too from His hand.
