Dear Partners in the Gospel,
First of all our family wants to thank you for praying for the girls and for us. Knowing that you are praying for us drives us to a bolder confidence in the sovereign goodness of our Lord. Also, your notes of encouragement reminded our family how grateful we are to be a part of a team that cares about the spread of the Gospel and cares for the spreaders of that Gospel.
After meeting with our doctor to review the girls test results he confirmed that both girls have a bacterial infection (with the reports also showing that Thea was "sicker" than Hosanna, but with less symptoms). He prescribed them both some medications, which they began taking today, and assured us that after a week of taking the medications they would begin to feel much better.
We praise the Lord that we not only were able to find out what was going on with the girls health, but also that it was not something very severe. We also praise the Lord for the many lessons that He taught (and is teaching!) us about how to trust Him more and more each day.
Thank you again for praying for us and for being there for us as we are serving in Senegal. We will keep you updated on the girls and on the mighty things that God is doing in southern Senegal.
Rejoicing in Grace,
The Boyd Family
