Well, it's Saturday night and we finally are on the mend...from Wednesday night when Juliana got sick until mid-day on Friday we had a dreadfully wicked stomach virus. Six of the 10 of us were really sick. Dawn actually slept all day on Thursday...if any of you know Dawn, she does not take naps...and she very rarely get's sick...it hit her really hard. Besides Dawn and Juliana, I (Tim) got it, Conner got it (he slept straight for 22 hours, besides going to the bathroom), and Megan and Emily got it. For those of you who were praying, thank you so much.
Despite getting sick, the timing was such that Dawn or I could still go to visit Kiara everyday. Apparently there was something going around...a few of the nuns had the same virus and a few of the children in the orphan had it. All is well now!
Kiara is doing well, and we are excited to be able to spend time with her at our apartment. She is very cute. Tonight she was not interested in eating...Dawn is sad, that while this orphanage is way better than a state run orphanage, the little children are on a limited diet...she didn't want the mashed potatoes or the yogurt tonight.
Tonight we had dinner at a missionary's home. They have been in Albania for 19 years...they minister to the Roma people. They are from Scotland and the Caribbean...they have three boys which matched up to Conner and Christian's age. It was nice to fellowship with other believers over a nice meal.
Continue to pray for us and Kiara. God is good!!!
As of a few moments ago Juliana just threw up again! Please pray that no one else gets sick or re-sick!
