This morning at 8AM all 6 Vaughns and my mom were at the US Embassy to speak with the Consular. We spoke with her at length. While we were there she tried calling the Accra Ghana office. She had 7 numbers to try and not one of them would go through. She defintely sensed our desparation and we sensed her willingness to do whatever she can to help us. We will return there later this afternoon to speak with her again. She is a retired Consular and has worked all over the world and said that she has never encountered a situation like this before.

We are so encouraged by the fact that so many of you are praying for us and writing your senators and congressmen. We are eager to see what unfolds!

I am writing from Judy Miller's home where we (my mom) are once again doing laundry. Randy is back at the hotel with J and L who are taking a nap. He is busy getting papers in order so that he can return to Aplahoue tomorrow and close out things with our landlord regarding the telephone and utility bills. Tori and Timothy are here with my mom watching a DVD which happens to be The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!

Thank you for your continual prayers and notes of encouragement. We are absorbing it all!

Keep checking in! We will let you know when we hear anything!

Expecting Blessing!

We are expecting blessing as well, and are so confident that God is working out these details as we speak! Your perseverance is a great testimony - not one you asked for, but a testimony none the less! Loving you and eagerly awaiting news!!!

I FEEl like this is the week. I am thinking there should be many requests in the different legislators offices today. I have heard of other's cases where the legislators gave help and got things done. This is your turn!

We thank Suzy so much for her help there with all of you. We thank Judy Miller, as well.

Keep the faith, we DO look for those blessings to come soon and then it WILL feel like Christmas! Tori and Timothy, you guys must have the same feeling!

We are faxing now so I hope we all get some peace from this effort.

Sending love, hugs, and zillons of prayers.

I have been thinking about you guys all day. You are in my thoughts and prayers constantly. I have a feeling there are going to be several senators and congressmen who know the name Vaughn after this is all done. : )
