Update #3

I just got off the phone with Stef. She called with bad news. None of the families received their visas today at the Embassy appointment. It is 11pm there...they have been waiting all day to see what was going to happen. There is some mass confusion going on right now. They are going to try to go again tomorrow to the Embassy. They will go first thing in the morning (midnight central time). Stef and Adam will be asked some direct questions at this appointment. Please pray for the spirit of God to give them the correct answers for the authorities. Steffany was ill while we were on the phone. She has migraine so she took something to try to help it. It was making her dizzy and she thought she was going to throw up, so we ended the call quickly. Adam was out speaking with the lawyer and facilitator. There has been a lot of finger pointing which adds to the confusion, so he was trying to speak with them in the strength of the Lord.

It is crucial and urgent that we pray!!! They need to get this approval so they can bring the babies home to get on the path of healing.

I know you have been but please pray for--
* God to move in the hearts of the Embassy officials tomorrow (tonight our time).
*Pray for all of the necessary documents to be there.
*Pray for the Lord to push out all of the confusion.
*Pray for the Holy Spirit to flood them with the right words to answer the official's questions
*Together let's claim victory in Jesus Christ over the battle they are engaged in for the lives of Diezel and Daizey.
*Satan is mightily at work so together let's ask Jesus Christ to bind him from attacking them any further. We know that Our God is more Powerful and Reigns Supreme over any dart of evil that can be thrown at them.
*For Steffany's health
*For the Peace of Our Lord and Savior to prevail over all of the confusion, darkness, and anxiety
*These families are growing weary so please pray for the Lord to encourage their hearts in a mighty way.
*Continue praying for the state of health the babies are in

The Lord has called each one of us reading their blog to be warriors in prayer for these children and families. Together let's stand in the gap! I do not remember the names of the two other families that also need approval, but God does. If they can get approval tomorrow they will fly home on their original flight.

Again I ask you to leave them your comment so that their hearts may be ministered to seeing how many people are standing with them in prayer.

Praying for all 3 families to stay strong during this difficult and confusing time. And especially for the health of those babies and strength for the adults.

My heart is heavy with the burdens of your family. I don't know anything to do but pray. All day long the HS has laid you on my heart and as I do my daily tasks I am lifting your family before His throne.

I believe in the sovereign God. He is the controller of all. Again, let me encourage you with the Word.

"Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever,
For wisdom and power belong to Him.
21"It is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.
22"It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And the light dwells with Him.
23"To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise,
For You have given me wisdom and power;
Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You,

A favorite passage from Daniel 2. God is in control of all. He is in control of time and kings (authorities). Cling to the truth and let it penetrate your soul in your time of need.

Beseeching the Father for release to come home and healing for each of you!

Major Mom said...

When we decide to answer God's call and pluck a children out of a living hell we can expect satan to give a fight! We see it over and over again in adoptions...Satan does not want to see children rescued, given the gift of a saviour and experience the love a family. Lets storm the gates of heaven, ladies. We can pray for God to intervene, to be faithful in His calling of these families to bring these kids home and pray satan back into his pit where he belongs.

Step off satan, God has this one won! You will not interfere any longer in getting these children home. We have already won this battle, our God is bigger than you.

I will be praying the holy spirit will move in a mighty way, place Godly people in these families paths and they will receive the visas they need.

Lifting you all up in prayer constantly.

In Him,
Katy

crispy said...

God woke me up at 1:06 (FL time) and I knew it was to lift you up in prayer. I was praying that you would have the right words to say. That you would be instruments of Christ. That God would have grace on you and your situation.

I am amazed to see God pull together virtual strangers to come together on your behalf. As hard as it is for you, I see Him working in mighty ways.

((hugs))
