For several days, I've been praying something specific for our kids. Our friends, the Guier's, are in Peru right now getting to pick up their 2 girls and bring them home! Their girls live in the same orphanage as our kids. A big party was thrown and their going home was celebrated! But I knew this could potentially be super hard on our kids. Not to mention the Guier's. :) So I prayed and prayed (not knowing which day exactly would be goodbye day) that God would supernaturally implant a feeling of HOPE in our kids hearts instead of grief or sadness. That the Guier's leaving would be a huge sign that they are going to get to come home too. Hope
A few days after the big goodbye, Lisa e-mailed me a quick email telling me that our oldest had given their oldest his mp3 player. This is his most prized possession--possibly the only thing he owns of any value. And he gave it to her to travel with and use "until he gets to the United States". Hope! He believes he will make it here to retrieve it from her...or get a new one! Whichever...he believes. My prayers are being answered!
In other news, it sounds like our case is being discussed in Peru and going well. Please keep praying! I have a friend who is committed to praying for us at 9AM each morning until July 1st--if you'd like to join her and I in the mornings, that would be great!
Enjoy your Sunday!
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
