Update from Haiti - 6:30 AM Utah time

Just received this information from "Team Hope" (thanks Pete and Mare for the name). This was sent in by Scott, who is Avrie's dad and offers this completely fabulous Papa Bear Perspective:

All the children look great. We were able to make it to the church that I attended and collected 11 children at about 3 in the morning. We took them to another orphanage up close to our original building. Charyel took all the children with passports to the embassy. Trevor, Brent and I are here for the day. I have avrie on my lap and just put a peanut butter and some turkey jerky in her. She looks very good. I checked her out pretty well. Her skin is clear and smooth and she looks healthy. The plan right now is to bring all our children here today while Cheryl spends all day at the embassy running the paperwork thru.

I have also heard from Chareyl and she is at the embassy with ALL the paperwork and those children that should have visas (because of where they were in the adoption process) right now. I have contacted those senators' offices that we've been working with to let them know she needs help to get in.

Please keep praying specifically for the people at the Embassy to work with her - can you even begin to imagine how stressed and overworked they are right now???

Keep praying for the kids.

I'll send more as it comes in

Thank you so much for being so diligent with your updates. We stayed up a little with a very worried Ethan last night, talking with him about Jesus, and how during this tragic time, He can help us, and the people in Haiti, feel comforted through the Spirit. We're all learning a lot though this experience, even those of us a degree or two of Kevin Bacon removed.
