The List

Sometimes I blog because I've told some the latest update, but know there are others who would rather read or who are far away.  But sometimes I blog because I can't physically get my mouth to say certain words over and over.  Today is the latter.
We are not going to be on the July 1st list.  We ran into some hiccups (for lack of better words and the avoidance of profanity) that have us delayed.  Our agency and their attorney are continuing to work on our behalf.  But I won't lie, today was a rough day.  I have a million questions that will probably never get answered--why do they wait to tell us things until we're sitting around waiting for good news?  Why do they decide this or that?  Even if I had Peru's ear, it wouldn't matter.  They're not really in control anyway.  And while today still feels like they are frustrating many lives (because more than our disappointment, I hate how long this is taking for the kids)... we know that God is still ultimately in charge.
So you probably won't hear me chatting too much about the details of this.  I'm going to do what I'm told and keep walking.  But I will continue to pray--that God would work hard behind the scenes.  I know He loves these kids more than we do and He knows what is best for them and when.  I will continue to pray that God would hang onto the Peruvian 5 and help them to trust Him and His time.  The waiting has to be hard on them!!  
And I will continue to pray that He is glorified.
In the process.
In the Sterling family's lives.
In me.
We are grateful for all of you that have been praying with us.  We are humbled by the amount of people  involved in our story, cheering for and backing us.

"But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved."  Hebrews 10:39

  1. Praying Psalm 139:4-5 for you guys- that you would have supernatural peace knowing that God knows your aching heart and thoughts and that He goes before and behind you to hem you in! This isn't an easy journey and you guys are doing it in a way that grows the faith of everyone watching you. Thanks for sharing- even when it is hard to share!
