Didn't See That Coming

Caleb, Haley, Charlie and Jenna left our house early this morning, first heading to Frýdek-Místek in order to get necessary COVID-19 tests done before they can cross some of the borders between here and Albania.

They left their trailer in the driveway so they didn't have to worry about parking there, and then planned to come back here, hook it on, and head out.

But once again, God had other plans for them.

After they did their tests (1000 Kc each, for anyone who is interested in that detail. Blood tests were done at the Krevní centrum in Frýdek-Místek) Caleb realized his wallet was missing. Claire and I drove there to get money to them so they could pay and leave.

They came back to the house, assuming it would be easily found here; but it wasn't.

So their day has looked much different than they expected.

Amidst rain showers, Caleb has unpacked the car, trailer and car top carrier, searching everywhere for it, while we searched inside the house. But as of now, it hasn't shown up.

They are in need of a miracle.

Caleb's driver's license and bank cards are in the wallet; Haley's bank card isn't working. They had fraudulent activity on it a month ago and are waiting for a new card, so they have no way of getting money or paying for anything without Caleb's cards.

We are praying as we search, and acknowledging God's hand in this delay. What at first seemed like it might be a few hours delay, has turned into a day, as they will spend the night again tonight. We'll try searching again tomorrow.
