Crazy Love Prayer Challenge!



We have been blessed by the prayers of friends and strangers!  A wonderful, God fearing blogger, Linny, is encouraging her readers to come before the Lord on Wednesday, Sept 8th, in prayer and fasting for those who are in the middle of adoption.
Linny has asked families to blog about what they need prayer for.
Christ specifically asks us to care for the orphans, therefore Satan will attempt to discourage families from adoption, we need to continue to pray for each other and for the orphan. 

When we returned home from China with Jorja - there was so much turmoil in our home, I had to just sit, cry and pray!  Thankfully God held us tighter and we became a stronger family and closer to God.

As we have begun our present adoption process, things were going well.  But, as we progress, material things have been breaking down or just causing trouble.
A few weeks ago, when our hot water heater was pouring water everywhere - my husband and I literally stood there and laughed!   We knew then that God was blessing us with something special and Satan was trying to discourage us!

This last week, we have had some more things go wrong with our paperwork - not a huge deal - just time consuming, and discouraging!

Though we do not have a picture of our boys in Ethiopia, we know that God is in control and that He will supply our needs!

My prayer request is that families be encouraged through the adoption process! Whether the need is financial, physical or emotion - I pray that their needs are met in order to bring their children home to their forever family.
