We've Got The Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy...


Meron's smile sums up how we are all feeling tonight. We've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts...

I know we haven't talked about it much on here - but the last 3 months have been a real test of faith for us. At times it has felt like God has been silent and we have had some serious moments of struggling.

BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL ALWAYS.

We got some GREAT news today regarding some of the barriers that were in place and stopping us from moving forward on getting LH3 home. The wheels are back in motion!

We have a SPECTACULAR prayer team and we are so blessed by you guys - THANK YOU. We do most of these kind of updates via an email to that team so if you wanna get in on that prayer action with us - just drop me an email or leave a comment here.

We'll probably be upping the ante on prayer as we move in to these next few weeks. Our minds were blown at the power of prayer during the journey to Meron so we're not leaving anything to chance on our next girl!

Seriously though - big thank yous to everybody for your willingness to walk with us - we have needed it more than you know!

It was a happy night at Camp Hoffman tonight - lots of prayers of thanks!

Laura's very tearful call to me yesterday just about scared me to death until I realized they were tears of joy! While the team is praying for LH3, I hope they will pray for our brand new Adoption Advocacy/Orphan Care Ministry at church so we can bring together many families and children.
