Journaling Furlough and Prayer for Eliseo

We arrived in our home town, Redding, CA, safely this past Wednesday! And with so many family and friends to see, it's been non stop all day and late into the night most every day! :)  
We are staying with Daniel's brother, Joel; he and his wife just had their 8th little one.  So what do you get when you have 20 children ages 14 and under in one house?  Lots of crazy fun!!!
On the way up to Redding, we stayed at my sister Julee's house and so enjoyed being with her as well as seeing my aunts, uncles, and cousins!  
Since we are here in Redding for another 2 weeks before we take off across the country, we are taking care of some medical needs.
Eliseo (3 years old) will be having surgery early tomorrow morning to remove his tonsils and adenoids and getting tubes put into his ears.  
We sure appreciate your prayers for him.  This will be his second surgery.  My sister says he's going to dread coming to the USA if he has to have surgery every time he comes! :) 
Well, this was short, I know, but with 20 children running around...well, I'm sure you understand!! :)
Thank you all for praying for our family!

How do you feed 20 children?  You make lots of food and get a really long table!

  4. Hello Jaynee,
    I LOVE the most recent family photo of you all!! You are such a beautiful family and we can hardly wait to see all of you. I think I need to start making homemade flour tortillas NOW so we have enough for when you get here :-) hee hee

    I am praying for sweet little Eliseo.

    Enjoy Redding....we miss it too!


  5. Awww, sounds like so much fun! Glad you're having a great trip. Hopefully you'll feel refreshed, and not totally rung out by the end! Sweet little Eliseo - I hope he has a quick, easy recovery!
