Prayers for Fellow Homeschooler

Please say a prayer for this family... They were traveling as her husband was being transferred to Japan (Military)... They stopped for the night and their large van was stolen from the hotel parking lot in WA... They lost many personal items... The van has been recovered but none of their personal items were still there including birth certificates, passports to travel to Japan, and a college age daughter's credit cards... Thank you...
