Weekly Prayer Requests

A quick recap of last week's prayer requests:

  1. That our USCIS approval comes this week. - It came! And so did our FBI approval apostilles!
  2. That our fundraising efforts are blessed. - We had a very successful online auction and raised $1,000! But, we've encountered some snags in planning our big dinner fundraiser. 
  3. That we encounter no delays in the process. - please continue to pray for this intention 
  4. That baby "Truman" is being well cared for and is prepared by the Holy Spirit to have a family. - please pray for this intention fervently. 
  5. That baby "Truman's" paperwork is in order and we don't hit any snags as far as that goes. - please continue to pray for this 
  6. That our process in his country goes smoothly and that we are kept safe. - and this :)
  7. That our family handles the process and transition with grace. - and this 
  8. That our extended family realizes what a blessing this baby is and begins to support us. - and very little progress made in this department... So please keep praying. 
  9. That The Lord provides for us a car that can fit all of our children. - please keep praying for this.

It's looking like we will be able to submit our dossier in 2 weeks or so, which puts us at about 6-8 weeks before we travel. With so much money to raise, I admit that I was feeling very discouraged yesterday. But fear does not come from the Lord, so I am choosing to trust in His provisions. 

How can I pray for you this week? If you don't want it to be public, let me know, my comments are moderated.




  1. Pray for our Ana, she got a stomach bug that has really knocked her out and she doesn't have much weight to lose...

    1. Oh no! Will definitely pray. Please keep me posted.

  2. Praying for your intentions. Pls. pray I continue to experience God's power made manifest this Lent, through grace upon grace. He is mightily at work. "Great is our Lord and mighty in power." Ps 147:5
