Praise the Lord!!! Real progress!

The heavens declare the glory of God over Africa, summer 2011
Are we seeing the parting of the waters?  I think we are witnessing the mighty hand of God as the walls of water stand in place and He makes provision for N and A to in fact walk through to freedom and hope.  Wow, we're so encouraged!  We got some amazing news this morning!  Significant progress was made on our case with N and A, even more than we had imagined and prayed for (Eph 3:20!).  The attorney's assistant was able to gather and process all the necessary paperwork to begin our adoption in Congo and our case was heard in court!  We were just praying and hoping for the assembling of the paperwork since that had been such a sticking point, but the fact that the case was already heard in court is another huge step!        

There are still several steps ahead of us and it's never over until it's over, but this is an important step forward.  We'll write another post soon letting you all know what's next, but for now we want to celebrate what God has done so far.  Thanks for all your prayers!


  1. This is absolutely wonderful!!! Praise the Lord!! Keeping on praying for you all!!
