Great news- Dossier is done and sent off (as of this morning.) Praise God!
For those who don’t know- we encountered a hold up with Homeland Security and lost quite a bit of time with their unfortunate error. We are trying not to dwell on that, but to be thankful that it is cleared up now, and that we finally received the one missing document to complete this important dossier. Through the frustration of that mishap, we were constantly reminded of His perfect timing. We trust Him..
He has been teaching us a lot about trust lately… This is something that is not easy for me (Mary) I admit. I like to have a perfect plan and when things go differently than I had anticipated, I get overwhelmed. We’ve been feeling overwhelmed with a lot of things lately. Please continue to pray for us. Pray that He would give us wisdom and strength and that we would constantly lean into Him.
This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the Lord ? And who is a rock, except our God?— the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. (Psalms 18:30-32 ESV)
We continue to be blessed by the people around us. Family and friends have showered us with more support and encouragement that we could’ve ever imagined. It’s truly amazing! Every text, email, prayer, phone call- We appreciate it all! In the past few weeks we have been blessed by unexpected donations, too. Thank you all so much for showering us with love!
This is random but Michael and I have been blasting this song lately in the car, and at home.. love these words:
Jesus, You’re the one who saves us ..Constantly creates us into something new. Jesus, surely you will finds us. Surely our Messiah will make all things new.
Also, we have seen a picture of our new nephew, Moses! Julie and Jason have gotten their referral and he is adorable. We can’t wait to meet him!
Hopfully we will have a picture of our guy soon! Love you guys!!
