How you can help

Thanks for praying for us. That is incredibly encouraging. We remain confident God will continue work as Jack develops.

Things have gone amazingly well! Jack had the hernia surgery, then was discharged from the hospital on Mother’s Day. His passport arrived at the end of May. He has three more follow ups, and we hope to travel back to Nairobi mid July.

Below are a few updates regarding giving:

Financial needs completely met

Thanks to so many good friends, all the financial needs associated with Jack's birth have been met!

Expenses have been COMPLETELY met by many many many generous gifts! Thank you! This includes the airline fare, the out of pocket medical expenses beyond what our insurance covers in the US, and housing for a couple months.

We HAD a list of needed baby items, but most of them have already been provided! Thanks to so many of you for helping us this way!

    Thank you, Jerry, for your continued updates on Jack and your family. I know that Jack’s slow growth rate is discouraging. But remember that much of his current development normally achieved in the uterus can be expected to be slower development outside. His growth rate should catch up after he is fully independent of all those medical apparatuses. God is with you. I know that He will provide and give you direction. I miss all of you and hope to someday meet Jack.
