Join us on our adoption journey.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
We are no longer orphans because of what God did for us. With one simple act of obedience our sins were forgiven at the cross. So what are we doing with the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ? Our family has decided to take a step of faith and do what He's called us to do, to take care of widows and orphans. Our journey starts with adoption.

Six more sleeps...

I know I missed a few days on here but I've been feeling a little bit anxious.  Anxiety is NOT from the LORD, please pray for me as I trust God in this.  When I started the countdown the days were going so slow, now they are speeding away on me and I want them to slow down.  I'm anxious about leaving my kids here and going to a third world country for seven days.  I know they will be well cared for, they will have their two Granny's here spoiling them rotten (oh maybe that's why I'm anxious!!!) but I've never been away from them for more than two days and I've certainly never left them in one country and gone to another.  I was also reminded today in Church that the hand of God is on our family and that when God calls you to do something, you do it.  As a dear friend put it "It's safer to be in God's will than anywhere else."  Thanks dear friend.  So I'll focus on what we've been called to do and whatever happens will be okay because God is in control not me!

Thank you for praying for us, for supporting us, for wrapping your arms around our family and encouraging us.  Thank you Church family for being the hands and feet of Christ and for being an example to those who are lost and dying.  We truly do need each other and I'm so thankful to God for placing us in such a wonderful Church family.

We've had so many outpourings of love I can't even begin to name them all.
  • All the donations for the Orphanage have been a blessing to our family and I know will be a blessing to the Orphanage also. 
  • The prayers that are going up for us.  Thank you Pastor Nick for today!
  • The offers for any help that we need before and while we're gone.
  • For the day off last week so I could get some things done.  You know who you are and how much you mean to me!
  • For dinner and prayer tomorrow night.
  • For all your interest and support, it means a lot.
Again, I can't name all the blessings here but know that we love you all and need and appreciate your prayer support.

Trusting in Him because He is the all sufficient and sovereign God of the universe.
