Awaiting Doctor's results

We've waited all weekend to get the results of the tests taken for Mako and to get the doctor's opinion. We are hoping we will hear the word today and press towards a recovery for Mako.

Roo continues to improve. Hopefully this means we are all on the mend at St. Laurence House.

To my surprise yesterday morning, James found an open internet cafe and was able to chat with me. Also, after Mass at Grace Church we gathered around to share a phone conversation with him. He is well and was excited to hear our voices. My 18 month grandson has been practicing saying "how d bodi, James?" all weekend, but became shy when he actually had the opportunity. "How d bodi" is Krio for "How are you?".

The newest campaign packet was mailed out via US Post last Thursday, April 3rd. If you are on the list you should have received yours. Please watch the DVD when you have time. We are anxious for your response.

Blessings, for a productive and good week.
