So Much Happening!

And it’s all good!

Upon sharing my excitement on facebook about becoming a prayer warrior with Reece’s Rainbow, Carla (from About A Child) posted a website to the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit.  This is PERFECT for me!

It’s 2 days:  Thursday, April 29-30th in Minneapolis.  The only time I have ever been to MN was when we were on our way to San Diego in 2008 for vacation and we had a layover there.

I read all about it last night, and with the excitement, I prayed.  I prayed God would allow me to find the money in one form or another.  Immediately, I decided I would approach our church about it.  I have had the desire to begin an orphan ministry in our church, whether it be hosting, adoption, or missions trips..or All of the above!  I have been waiting and waiting to send my excitement in a letter en route to Pastors Jake and Dick  and the Board.  God has spoken to me through James 1:4  “Let patience have its perfect work, that we may be perfect and complete lacking nothing.”  (NKJV)  This was divine timing if you ask me!  So this morning I drafted my letter, nearly perfect on the first attempt.  (Thank you, Jesus!)  and dropped it off at church this morning.  Time will tell what happens of the letter.  ALSO,  when I was telling my Mother-in-Law about the Summit…she announces she is on vacation that week.  Score!  Dan doesn’t have to take time off work!  I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself.  If you think about it, please pray I am able to go.  Thank you for sharing that Carla!  I would have never found it on my own.

We have also found another little girl, Masha

Masha was born in 2003-she is from Ukraine and has Treacher Collins Syndrome.  Masha also has hearing loss, but does not live in a deaf orphanage.

RR says we can’t adopt our girl and Masha at the same time…God has his timing.

That may be it for now…which is good because Gage just woke up!
