Christmas is approaching and we have found ourselves "stuck" in the States. Our precious Jude was just released from his second hospitalization since we have been in NJ. His poor little lungs just have been struggling immensely since we have been back in the States. Because he was born premature, the doctors have explained that his lungs just are not as strong and have some damage and they are having a hard time staying healthy. The doctor prescribed him a daily maintenance steroid and inhaler so hopefully we are on the right path to improved lung function! Please pray with us. While we are excited and eager to get home to Panama, we are grateful for the chance to spend the Holidays with our family and to have this extra time enjoying our loved ones. We know we will miss them greatly once we are back in Panama and are thankful for this chance to make memories and spend quality time together. We hope each of you has a very Merry Christmas, celebrating the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luke 2:11-14
