It has been a jaw dropping week!

I am simply in awe. I'm in awe of how amazing God is. How He works all things towards God for those that love Him. He not only knows how many hairs on on Jesiah's head (ours too!), but He knows exactly how many pennies we need to bring him home! Our friends, the Padgetts (they live in Maine), were crafty enough to come up with a coin drive to help us raise the last $2,000 we need to officially accept Jesiah's referral and move into travel mode. GOD IS MOVING MOUNTAINS! So far, we have been blessed with $610.00 dollars and my prayer is that with each penny, God blesses those that were willing to give up earthly riches in order to bring Jesiah home. Thank you for all of your continued prayers and support! Feel free to look for "Coin Drive for Jesiah" on our facebook page if you are interested in joining!

Update: We are still awaiting our final approval from China in the form of our Letter of Approval (LOA). Until this arrives, we can't move forward. God's perfect timing will prevail. We don't have quite all of our money needed to accept his referral and I know, once we do, our LOA will arrive :). We are all extremely eager to have him home with us, however I know God is making it happen. I need to rest in His timing- knowing we can't go wrong that way.

House Update: Please continue to pray for our home situation. If you don't know details and would like to be able to pray about things more specifically, feel free to contact me privately.

I am truly humbled and I know I keep saying this... God is so good. We have been faced with trials that have definitely tested my faith in the last several months, yet I know He is working to bring Jesiah home and working out all of the "other trials" too. We have heard from people I've never met that are willing to help us bring him home. I have heard time and time again that God has laid it on people's hearts to help us. Wow... I guess at this point (although I've written quite a bit already) I'm speechless....

  1. It is so exciting to see the Lord's love for Jesiah & your whole family stretch literally around the world! From China to Missouri & on to Maine & Arkansas & on & on & on!!! No one will ever be able to deny that God has a plan & purpose for Jesiah & the rest of your family!!!
