The Lord blessed our family with a new member this week. Back in March, we felt Him leading us to invite a young lady to come live with us for a while. We knew that when Sally left to go back to the states I would need help with the girls to be able to continue my Portuguese studies. Immediately we knew who the Lord had chosen to come...Sheldon Smith from Charlotte!
After months of waiting, finally the time came for her to arrive. Our family drove to the city of Nampula to get her.
|Off we go!|
|The beautiful trip to Nampula......|
|enjoying God's creation.|
|The hillside covered in huts|
|The next day we went to the airport to get her.|
|The mountains just behind the runway.|
|Just spotting her plane|
|On the ground!|
|Can you see her? With the pillow....in the middle...|
|See me? I was trying so hard to get the guard at the door to let me in |
to help her through immigration and have her bags checked.
He wouldn't let me!!!
|Finally, we had her!|
This is the sign Emma made for Sheldon.
They are so happy she is here.
|All the girls|
|The whole family!|
|Sheldon having a chance to read her sign.|
We love her so much already! She is perfect for our family.
