On Monday we appeared to the Jinja court. This was definitely another experience that makes me grateful to be an American. I love that in our country we have the right to due process. The judge summoned us to court at 9:00 am. She arrived a little after 9:30. The court was an open courtroom and the judge had about 10 civil cases that day. She called each case up and proceeded with the hearings in front of everyone in court that day. While she was working on other cases we were expected to sit there and keep the girls quiet. This doesn't seem like too hard of a task until you include the fact that we were there for 8 hours. Ours was the last case of the day. We finished around 5 pm.
The judge said that we would get our ruling on October 10th. All of our council and lawyers have said that this is a good thing. It means that we will get a positive ruling on that day.
Now we wait and pray.
This has been a very nerve wrecking process. During all of this I keep reminding myself that the Lord has provided for us to be here. He has taken care of us until this point and will continue to look after us until we get home.
