After so many hours of waiting and flying, again waiting and again flying, the children are home in Latvia. We called Edgars and talked a few minutes. He was so glad to hear us. I asked if he slept on the planes and he said, “After a cup of coffee I couldn’t sleep well.” No kidding! :)
James is missing Edgars a lot today. He said that he feels so lonely and couldn’t wait to call Edgars. All of us are missing Edgars already, even the dogs :). Well, we can’t tell what God has in stored for Edgars, but the Bible says that “His (God’s) way is perfect,” and we believe that.
Keep praying!
Blessings,The Johannsens.

Four weeks flew by like one day. Days are marching so fast. It is hard to believe that Edgars is on the plane right now. It was hard to say our “good-byes.” Please, continue to pray for Edgars. Pray that the Lord shall always be a shield of protection for Edgars (Ps.18:30) and that goodness and love will follow Edgars all the days of his live (Ps. 23:6).
Blessings,The Johannsen Family.

Three weeks are gone.

We cannot believe that three weeks are gone. On our way to the dentist today Edgars said that time goes so fast. I agree. Time does go fast; that’s why I teach my boys to give thanks to God for a new day, value every single day and enjoy it.
The third week was wonderful as the previous ones. James and Edgars are getting to know each other better. They are spending more time with each other and their conversations are different now and more peaceful:).
The highlights of this week are: The Birds of Prey Show; The Magic Show; our visit with the Burell’s family; the laser show at the Stone Mountain Park; Jenna and Jack’s visit, and Edgars’ visit to the best dentist! (today:). As you see, we had a full week (again:). All shows and visits were wonderful, but one of them was special. My dear friend and a sister in Christ Jenna came to meet Edgars with her 6 y.o. son Jack yesterday, and Edgars shared with us how he came to know Jesus. Oh, how I grateful to our Father that HE is everywhere! It is so precious to me!
Thank you all for praying for us. Please continue to pray for God’s perfect plan in Edgars’ life.
