Kasalehlia! We are the Kihleng family and we are missionaries to the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. This blog is to keep friends and family (and whoever else is interested!) updated on what we are doing in the islands. So check back here often to see updates on our ministry as well as our ever growing family!

Going Home!

Yep, we're heading back to Pohnpei!  We're disappointed and a bit frustrated that we are having to leave with no definite answers for what is wrong with Kaylinn, but as there are no other tests the doctors here can run, we have no reason to stay any longer.  We are anxious to get back to our other children and our life back in Pohnpei.  Kaylinn is on a medication now that may or may not help.  The hospital had Rickson and I take CPR while here so that we can be more prepared in case she has further problems.  We are also going to get a sensor monitor that will alert us if she stops breathing or her heart stops while she is sleeping.  There really isn't much else we can do at this point but pray that God will protect our little girl.  We fly out tomorrow and will have a one night layover in Guam.  We will be home in Pohnpei Tuesday (Wednesday Pohnpei time).  Thank you for your prayers.  We'll keep you updated as we can as we return home.

Hello! I'm Ramona Adkins, the church secretary for Grace Baptist in Landrum, SC. We've been following your blog and have been praying for Kaylinn and your family. I know you're anxious to get home to all the other Kihlengs:-) We will update our prayer letter and let the congregation know the latest news. We pray little Kaylinn doesn't have any more scary episodes! Love in Christ, Ramona

So glad that you get to go home. I know your other children will be thrilled to see you. We will continue to pray that you will still get an answer to Kaylinns's problem. Praying for all of you.
