We need your prayers!!!

We just arrived back from Arequipa Wednesday. We arrived to a house that is flooded with sewer water. The tub backed up, overflowed and there is sewer water everywhere in the house. Even if we could clean up the water, there is mold everywhere and there is no way to clean it up and dry it out enough to have it safe to live in...especially with a newborn. All of our stuff is ruined. To top it off all of our luggage from Arequipa is missing...so what we would have had is gone as well. We are staying at a hotel and searching for a new place to live while Tyson works at cleaning up the mess, getting the septic functioning again and getting clean water going for our team upstairs. One praise in all this is for Tyler and Alex. Tyler is cluster support for Cusco and Alex is a 40/40 there. They heard about our problems and immediately offered to come help! Please, please pray for a miracle, that our luggage will be found! Also, please pray for safety for Tyson, Tyler and Alex as they work and for widom each step of the way. Also, I am currently searching for a place to rent...pray we can find something as it is very difficult and expensive here. Thank you for keeping us lifted in prayer...we are in desperate need of it right now!
Below are some pictures of what we came home to.

Tyler and Alex knee deep in gunk...these two definately have servant hearts!

Oh my goodness...this is terrible! Know that many are praying for you. Is there anything specific that I can help with? I know I'm a long way away, but maybe we can get creative :) I read a great verse last night that encouraged me, maybe it will do the same for you:

Romans 5:3
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

I love you guys, and you are in my prayers.

Wow friends....what a journey. Of course we will be praying extra for you all, knowing that you guys rely on the strength of the Lord and that He will sustain you through this. So sorry for such trials! Yet...when I look at pictures of Grady...such amazing blessings as well. We sure love you all! Kelly and Bob
