PRAISE JESUS--Update #4

YAY! Just got the phone call...They received Embassy APPROVAL...all three families are coming home with their new children! How Wonderful and Excellent is Our Lord God Almighty! One family is already on their way home, the other leaves tomorrow, and Steffany and Adam will be flying home with their twins on Sunday night. It will be Sunday afternoon our time.

Our next step of action as their faithful prayer warriors is---

*Pray for the health of Diezel and Daizey to endure this very long flight.
*Pray that right now as they begin preparing to come home that the Lord will strengthen the twins.
*Pray that they will not become dehydrated and be protected from any further illness.
*Stregnth for Adam and Steffany for this long flight, protection against illness, and rest before they leave.
*Pray for the siblings anxiously awaiting their arrival home(Jace, McKayley, Faith, and Lukas)may their hearts be prepared by the Lord as Diezel and Daizey join their family.


They will be bringing a friend home with them as well...so we need to pray for the lengthy flight for her as well. I told Stef how many people were up in the night praying for them and she couldn't believe it! She said, "That's so awesome!".

Thank you for being their intercessors and getting them through this appointment. Now we pray them home and to complete health! God has used them to do a mighty thing in bringing so many of us to our knees and to be truly interceding on their behalf. Just as He is revealing Himself to them half way across the world, He is revealing Himself to each of us as we have been seeking His heart on their behalf. Thank you doesn't seem to cover my gratitude for your prayers. I pray God blesses each of you and ministers to your hearts as you stand beside them watching the glory of God displayed in their adoption journey!

I just talked to your mom. She told me the news! I figured I could get the full story on the blog. The kids are so excited. Faith screamed and did something really cute with her arms! See you Monday!

Sorry, she didn't say how the twins were doing. It was a brief phone call. We will just keep praying for the Lord to strengthen them and prepare them for their flight home to America!

Stef,
again,I don't know you or your family but I have been praying my heart for you. Last night, as I prayed I kept hearing that song by Michael W. Smith in my head "Open the Flood Gates of Heaven, Let it Rain, Let it Rain!"
The Holy Spirit was raining down His Power! Praise the Lord!!!
I had chills as I read the lastest post, God has answered our prayers and we will continue to pray as a new journey is beginning!

Your children are beautiful! God is amazing!

crispy said...

I have been away all day and was so eager to see a positive update. I am praising God (through the tears). HE IS FAITHFUL. I am in awe of His power and praising Him and rejoicing in His sovereignty. I didn't sleep well at all last night. Tossing and turning and praying each time. Like I said before, you have been so heavy on my heart. How wonderful to see God orchestrate this all.

Now I will continue to pray for the health of those babies.

I am so happy for you all.

Our family keeps praying for you. My 3 year old thinks that Diezel is the coolest name ever and keeps asking me "mommy- what is that boy baby's name?" and then chatters to himself about what a great name that is! :) You, the babies and the friend are all in our prayers for the long and tiring flight you're in for... may God fill you each with His energy and endurance! Thanks for letting strangers share in this.... it's so exciting to be able to tell my little ones- "God answered our prayers!" and to teach them that we can pray for people we don't even know! So... thank you & know that there are lots of us out here praying for you!

amy smith said...
