"I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing praise to your name,
O Most High."
God literally rained down money from heaven. We needed in a very short time $1500.00 for our home study and $900.00 for fees. God worked through the hearts of some people and we got the money for our home study!! Can we all say a big PRAISE THE LORD!! How exciting. I really just don't even have the words to express how thankful and blessed we feel. I can not thank you all enough for your support and encouraging words. We now need to get the $900.00 so that we can even do our home study. That paper work will take a little while to complete, and then there is more after that, but right now we need to get that $900 to pay our fees. Could you please help??? If everyone just even gave $5 that would make a difference. Please pray about whether or not the Lord would have you to help financially. He calls ALL of us to give.
Think about how hard it is to ask for money. This is truly a humbling experience and it is just the beginning. Like I said before,I know with all my heart that God will provide at His timing. We take this amazing gift as our confirmation that we are doing God's will.
There are a couple of other families that are raising money to adopt from Ethiopia. They just happened to be from our church family. All of us are elders/elder wives in our little church and at different times God has called us all to adopt. It's truly incredible. You can read about the Walser's at their blog here . You can read about the Shubin's here. and you can read about the Waulk's journey here We are all at different points in our adoption, but we are all following Jesus and we need your support. Would you please commit to praying for all of our families and all of our children??
I pray that all who read this will see Jesus. I give Him all the glory. He is to be praised!!!!!!!!
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do so maybe matched by your completion of it, according to your means. For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have." 2Corinthians8:9-12
