Anything He pleases!

February 9th, 2011

We heard exciting news from Linsey Smoker!

She reported, “Someone who wants to remain anonymous sent a check for $1000!”

PRAISING GOD!!!  This means we can pay the next fee to Lifeline on time!  He really can do ANYTHING He pleases!!!

Linsey told me that she was getting “a lot” of Valentine’s orders, so I asked if she was feeling overwhelmed yet.  She assured me that she has friends helping, including their small group.

And she asked me to let everyone know that she needs to have all the Valentine’s orders in by Thursday at midnight.

And now we are just waiting for the word from Stephanie as to when our adoption attorney has submitted our paperwork to Katie’s government.

As soon as we hear that, we want to do two things.

The first is to post her picture here for all to see!  Glad day!

The second is also a prayer request.

I’ve been looking for all the information I can find about where our girl is living, even to finding her street on a virtual map, and wondering which of the buildings shown is her institution!  We’ve been told that her area “is a very very poor area. That often there is little money for food, that heating the building has to be a priority.” The people there have next to nothing.

We have learned that there is a possibility we may be able to get nutrition to her after our paperwork is submitted. Could you pray that God would open up a way for this to happen?  Perhaps through a missionary or ministry already located there?

We are praying that God will prepare her body to begin to properly receive nutrition, and prepare her heart to bond to us and receive all the love we have to give her.  We know that He can do all this and more!

Our hearts are so full of awe at seeing our great God do great things!  Thank you to each one of you who is praying and giving and helping so diligently!  Thank you!!

Share it!
