Today we returned to court in hopes of receiving our ruling. The judge typically will issue a verbal ruling and then a few days later you will receive the legal document. We waited at court for 6 hours and the judge never showed up. The clerk kept telling us that the judge was coming and we should wait. So we waited. We are going to try again on Tuesday. It is looking like we will not make it back home until the end of next week. I am completing my fifth week here and am getting anxious to go home. I am seeking comfort in the book of James. I know what the end result will be and that makes this all worth it. I find that you can put up with much more than you ever thought when you know that it is for the Lord.
Consider it pure joy my brothers when you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4
Our daily life here is boring and interesting all at the same time. We don't do too much because it is just too hard with 4 toddlers. I usually spend a couple of hours a day washing clothes. The rest of the time is spent playing outside. The children love to play outside in the courtyard. There are a few bikes and a swing for them to play on. Sadie has started speaking some in her version of Lugandan. She basically talks in jibirish to the girls. They act like they know what she is saying and listen to her. It is quite entertaining to watch.
We are starting to see the girls personalities develop. L is a mess and likes to play outside. She is more of a tomboy. H has a sweet spirit and likes to play dressup. It is interesting to watch how 2 children with the exact same life experience are so different.
I am sorry for so few photos. The device that transfers photos from my camera to computer is not working.
