Lots of Good News!!

Well there is lots to report. Yesterday a bunch of ladies from our church met to sew together bears for us to take to the orphanage. This was really touching to see so many people come together to help us. They got about 70 bears I think. The Awana kids will stuff them Wednesday night as I talk about Samuel and our upcoming trip. After the Sunday night service the congregation took up a love offering for us. I am not sure how much was collected, but we will get a check this week from the church. Praise God, because this was much needed.

On the travel end, we received an email today saying we are now on step 11 of 12. I really hope this means we will get "the call" soon. I am grateful for this update because after a devotional I had this week I gave up begging God. My devotional was about King Hezekiah who begged God to give him more years to live. God granted him this plea and he begat Manasseh during this time. Manasseh then grew up to be the most evil king to ever rule Judah. If only King Hezekiah would have accepted God's wisdom and will for his life. So thank you Lord for this update and I know travel is in Your wonderful timing.
