Sooo... Laura has been a maniacal prayer warrior ever since she started reading this Circle Maker book. it's nuts, scary and extra cool all at once.
Well - last week she started praying with confidence - not asking God - but praying with confidence - that we WOULD be submitted to court on Friday of last week. She was certain it would happen - absolutely sure of it. Her prayer life has gotten that confident. Well - Friday came and went. And then so did the weekend and then this week started.
Then yesterday we got this email from our agency program director:
"I just wanted to let you all know that your case was filed with the Ethiopian Courts on February 22, 2013! We will now wait for a preliminary court date to be assigned. Exciting times... I’ll let you know as soon as I hear."Yeah - you read it right - February 22 was last Friday. I was desperately trying to contact Laura but she was in a bible study - she had gotten the email on her phone and said the tears just started streaming (luckily the lights were out she said).
God hears us people. He WANTS to hear from us. And He confirms it time and time and time again. Why do we doubt Him? (i am asking myself that...)
To top it off - a couple hours later we heard from her again and they already had a preliminary court date assigned - April 17th, 2013. For those who aren't clear on this whole convoluted, drawn out process - let's just say the next step is in motion! Now we wait and pray...
We celebrate all of the steps... but we're ready to have this one behind us!
