Well, here is an update on the stolen wallet saga! It got worse before it got better but praise God it did get better. We found out the guy charged $2600 on our credit card after the company reinstated it without talking to us. Then Baron suddenly remember he had another credit card in there that he didn't cancel. He called American Express and they said someone had tried to charge $1000 but it was denied. He had also taken $500 out of our checking account. The credit card we are not responsible for but I thought for sure the $500 was gone. Baron just found out this morning that we only will have to pay $50 of that...they will reimburse us $450 back into our account! Isn't God good? He takes care of us. Pray now that we will not be the victims of identity theft since his social security was also in there. His Romanian card was also in there, our visa so to speak. He will have to get another which will cost about $150 but compared to yesterday when we were looking at all these losses $150 seems like nothing! Overall I have bittersweet memories about Rome. I don't think we will be going back there any time soon though. I had resolved yesterday to not fret over this...afterall it is just money and my Father owns everything and has always provided for our every need. I can't say I was joyful with the situation but I was at peace and no longer fretting. I want to thank God for his care of us and thank him for his undeserving mercy!
