Mark and Andrew got to leave the orphanage for a few hours this afternoon. They went into the little town that is 20 minutes away. Andrew got a new pair of sunglasses, fedora hat and man purse. ;) Then they went for a bike ride around the park! Andrew did get to drive, but he, being a typical teenager, tried to get it up on two wheels!
Mark went to church tonight with a good friend. It was a two hour drive, but Mark said it was great! He enjoyed being with Christian brothers and sisters. He wanted to take Andrew, but there is one more paper to sign and stamp and the powers that be are on holiday. Mark is hoping they will do it tomorrow.
Sunday afternoon will be Andrew's going away party at the orphanage. Monday morning early, if the papers are signed and stamped, Mark will pick up Andrew and he will not return to the orphanage! They head for another town to get the five day passport started. Then they will take the train to another region and stay for a couple of days with the Browns who are adopting Evan. It will help save some money and Andrew gets to see some of his country!
Thank you again for the prayers and donations! We are blessed to have amazing support from all of you! I'm still in awe of this wonderful journey the Lord put us on. I can't wait to see what God has in store for Andrew!
