We serve a MIRACLE working God!

Today, we received CONCRETE travel dates!  YEAH!!!

We also received word from our agency that it was nothing less than a MIRACLE that our travel plans came together.  Apparently, MOWA (Ministry of Woman's Affairs-in ET) decided today that they would close their offices for two weeks for essential training.  Our agency staff worked until LATE LAST NIGHT to get all of our documents together so we could travel.  Our agency did not think they could pull it all together, but GOD HAD OTHER PLANS!  Praise the Lord!   Not all families scheduled to travel with us were this fortunate.  My heart is heavy for those that still have to wait.  PLEASE be in prayer for the ET government and for my friends who are still waiting.  I am praying for God's peace to envelope them and hold them steady until they are united with the Ethiopian darlings!   I stand in awe of what the power of prayer accomplishes!  

Plane tickets are bought and luggage is being pulled from the attic as I write this post.

Would you also include our sweet Ava Joy in your prayers this week?  Some VERY BIG changes are about to rock her world and I am believing that God will prepare her for her new family.  Please pray for the bonding process to happen immediately and that she would realize that we are her forever family.
