Good friday to all!

I had planned on posting about a paint idea that saved us a ton of money....but truthfully... things have been rough here and I'm wiped out! More importantly than my small problems are those of my cousin. We received word today that he and his young family are in "lockdown" in Cameron, Africa. They have been missionaries to children and their families for many years. There has been no further contact. Because of wars that are raging in neighboring countries, thousands of refugees are flooding into Cameron. They are looking for food, shelter, etc.And in many cases unable to find what they need or want. The mountain orphanage that my cousins were supposed to take over was bombed and 17 people were killed. My aunt and other family memebers (who were going to visit the new baby) have been denied visas.
If you feel led please pray for Jake, Holly, Joshua, Seth, baby Jude and all the other children. That they will have peace and safety. That the Father's Will, will be done in this situation.
We are unsure of food, water etc. at this time.

Thank you and Blessings,
Julie - momof4sweetsisters

I will definitely be praying... I have heard things are extremely difficult in Africa right now. It's a wake-up to how easy we have it here in America. Please keep us updated!
