God has a plan but we need your help!
We always say God will work it all out. Well it is one thing to say it but to put it into practice is another thing. We knew something was going to happen. We just did not know what. We were praying about what to do with the adoption we were working on... should we stop... put it on hold... or continue on... I sat in church on November 18th just praying for the Lord to show me what to do. We needed to do something. We felt called to adopt again but everything was moving soooo slow. I came home from church and started to check my e-mails. Much to my surprise there was an e-mail in regards to some children. What? Could it be? This one will require more money then we planned Adoption is expensive! Adopting a set of kids is astronomical. We are not wealthy. But one thing for certain is God has always supplied all our needs. Can we trust Him to meet the needs of us adopting a sibling group. This would require us to have a huge chunk of money upfront. The one thing we do not have is all that money up front. Living by faith has not allowed us to have a huge savings (just the opposite). Our heavenly Father has always made sure we are taken care of. He is Faithful. The one thing that has been hard for Bill and I is to ask for financial help. Bill always says he can work hard for the Kingdom but asking for money is just something that is the hardest thing to do. Well here it goes. These children are in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are regions in the DRC that have had some rebel fighting happening. This is where these children are. We need to get them out as soon as possible. We need the money now. We are trusting God to make this happen. We need the help of our fellow believers. In this season of giving can you please prayerfully consider helping us. We need to have an answer by Friday next week. The agency tells us that they are considering separating the children since one is a boy and one is a girl. They believe this will help with moving their case faster and removing them form danger. I believe that God is big enough to make this happen. Please stand with us and give. Thank you. If everyone gave this mountain would be moved.
