We need you.

Seriously need you. Will you team up with us and commit to pray?

We have many serious needs right now but a significant one is timing.

I just spoke with Tanis and she is not very happy at all. She is disappointed at how late the projected court date is. See the timing is an issue because Dean's (Tanis') dad is getting remarried in June. We are all heading to MB, Canada for that special event. If our court date is April 15...we could easily be there 3 wks...and we are running out of time. Tanis is leaving Africa mid to end of May.

Ok so at the risk of sounding pious ( which is a word I hate)... I'm not optimistic. This is not about positive thinking and hope for the best. This is about a firm belief that God chose us to adopt C and Z. That the timing is totally His timing. That He is in control 100% of this process. I am choosing NOT to worry and stress (because I've learned the hard way in my life that it does NOTHING but make you sick, old and not trust in God). I want you to team up with our family and literally storm Heaven for a miracle here. We kind of need (say that lightly) a court date in the first of April.

If you are on our side ... please just add a comment here letting us know you are committing to pray. "The prayers of a righteous man..."

Will you join us?

  2. Will certainly pray, I now how Africa"s ways on timing are not the easiest thing to have patience with sometimes but our LORD is more powerful then to let that come in HIS way! That His will be done. Take care :)

  12. God wants us to plead with Him, urge Him, be persistent...That's how we show Him that we really need Him. We will appeal to the One who loves orphans and widows - and He WILL answer. God bless.

  16. I'm praying for you in this. God's answers are amazing. Don't forget He is controlling the leaders of the world ( as to how far they can go) and they don't even know it!
