Quick Praises ...

I know I said I wasn't posting while on vacation, but had to share a couple of quick praises ...

1. Our I71-H came in the mail (our immigration papers for those who don't know) ... YEAH, WE CAN GO TO UGANDA NOW ...

2. We got an email that said custody papers will be signed next week and we could be preparing to travel 1st of September for MATTY JOSEPH !!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. and right after the email about going to get Matty Joseph, we get a call from a friend who says they just received a $1000 donation for our adoption ... DO YOU SEE HOW GOD DOES THAT !

4. AND KATIE IS IN THE STATES ... I will get to see her Sunday when I get back ... I beyond excited to sit at her feet awhile and hear in details what God is doing in Uganda, how her visit w/ Matty Joseph was and just hang w/ my sister !!!

REMINDER SHE IS SPEAKING AT OUR CONCERT ... DON'T MISS THE CHANCE TO SEE HER IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO COME ...

Reading a fabulous book THE HELPER and the word keeps leading me to scriptures about not judging ... I know I have to work my heart issue with those who say they don't feel called to speak up for the ORPHANS, help an ORPHAN, or even see ORPHANS as real people, or give me that ARE YOU CRAZY LOOK when I start talking about ORPHANS ... Good word as always from the Lord ... I will work on it ...

will check back w/ ya on Sunday unless I GET MORE PRAISES ... hee hee

I just laughed and cried when I read your post! I am so happy to know you are heading to Uganda in September to pick up your little guy. It's wonderful to see God's provision! I will be in Uganda in September, too. Maybe we will get to meet! I would love to meet Matty Joseph, too, and have you meet my grandson-in-waiting! I'm celebrating with you today!

Are These Kids All Yours? said...

Yep, holding your tongue around those who don't see it as important work for God - to help orphans...is tough for me too! Happy praises though!!!!!!
