Life around the hotel
Yesterday, Mike's dad got here. We were very excited to have him. Here are some pictures of Kerwin and his grandpa and Kerwin with his daddy. We told Kerwin that Denny was coming a few days ahead of time. He was very excited about his coming and looked forward to it all day. We went to the airport with Barb to pick him up along with another couple that is coming in to take their kids home. Kerwin an grandpa hit is off right away.
Denny brought Kerwin sunglasses, a watch, some new clothes, a Woody doll, Air Bud, and lots of other cool toys. We watched AirBud today. Kerwin loved it. He watched it very intently. He has enough sign language now that we could explain some of the plot to him but he still loves the action most of all. We knew that this movie would be a hit. His two favorite things to watch are sports and animals. We swam in the pool this morning and Kerwin enjoyed his new tube and beach ball. Tonight we are going to play some games in the room and then head to bed. We go to bed pretty early around here. It gets dark early and light early. Kerwin usually gets to bed around 8:30 and gets up about 7:00. Kerwin is learning how to play "Crazy Eights." He's getting the hang of it. He gets a little distracted while we are playing. I think he really likes the idea of playing the game more than actually playing the game.
No news today on the passport. Please, everyone pray for a miracle in MOI. We want our file to come out of there so badly. If we don't hear much of anything by this week, we will have to start making decisions about whether to stay here in Port-au-Prince or whether we will go back to the mission. We really don't want to have to go back. Please keep the prayers coming. God has heard them and answered so many already. I think that is encouragement to keep asking. Thanks for all the comments from home. They are wonderful at lifting our spirits.
