Incredible! I am so sad we will be in Hong Kong then! You can bet I will be following along for all the details on your blog! Praising God for his faithful provisions!

Oh man...I am so tempted to just buy a ticket on priceline. I would love to see you and Katie.

Oh man...I am doing everything I can to scrape together money for our adoption.

If only there were trees that grew money for great families trying to bring their children home :)

Jewels of My Heart said...

This just makes me want to cry!
Oh, the wonder of our God!
He is oh, so faithful!
I will be sharing the news.
I will be praying!
Oh, how I would love to be able to bring the kids on a road trip and share in your miracle from Jesus!

Oh, sorry about my story for the book..didn't want to do it until Coby was home..then just got too busy. I am so sad about it but now know I can't do a story in three days : )

OMG,how I wish I lived closer. I would be there! How awesome are God's provisions. I've taken to calling Him the Wonder-Working, Awe-Inspiring, Jehovah-Jireh, as He continues to amaze me in his provisions for our mission this summer. If you get a chance, check out the last few posts on our blog.

Oh, to hear Katie speak, too. I'm jealous. ;)


Terry said...

Sounds like so much fun Gwen, and boy, would I love to hear Katie speak about her amazing call to Uganda and her children. But we live a little too far...who knows, maybe the Lord will bless us with a little vacation! I love TN!

Lord Jesus, bless this event and I pray a blessing on the Oatsvall family today. I pray that as they continue to hear your voice and walk in obedience, that you will bless them financially beyond what they can imagine!

Amy Jo said...

Wow, Gwen!!! Very exciting on both accounts. :-) Praying the concert is a HUGE success. Wish I lived closer. Anticipating your announcement with joy. - Amy in OR
