This week has been more or less a test of what I can and cannot do. I love having the team here and want to spend as much time with them as I can, but I recognize the need to be careful (I’m not wanting to jump into hospital stay #3 anytime soon!).  I’ve been able to go in to the office in the mornings, although I still can’t be around large numbers of kids or be in the sun, so I’ve had to stay behind during the carnival events in the neighborhoods. I did however decide to visit House of Hope with the team this morning. The girls (who live there but attend our kids services each week) were supposed to be in school but got out early, so I was able to see them for the first time in 6 months (though Chase did make me wear a mask)! It made my heart happy to hug them and tell them how much I’ve missed them and love them. At one point, I heard someone yell “What?! JULIE’S here?” and then Bertha came running out of the girls dorm and embraced me in the biggest bear hug! Definitely the best moment of the day. Josidara asked if Chase had been passing along her messages each week from when he would see her at our kids services, which included telling me that she loves me more than he does. What really happened is about a week or two ago, Chase said “When you see Josidara, tell her that I’ve been passing along her messages to you each week about how much she loves and misses you.” I kind of ratted him out.

Anyways, if you’d like to read more about what the team has been up to, check our ministry blog at
