"Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty." (Zechariah 4:6)
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
About a month ago, we came across 4 children from Ghana, Africa. God began impressing on our hearts to pursue these children. With many questions, praying and ALOT of processing, we stepped out in obedience.
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." (Isaiah 30:21)
So in faith and complete humility, we "walked in it." We sent our petition to our Adoption Agency and they have agreed to let us move forward and adopt these children with the exception of minor details that need to be done.
The journey is just beginning.....
BUT...we know that we have stepped out in obedience to God and that He WILL equip us every step of the way.
Out of complete honesty, I hesitated to share all of this on my blog. It is my pride that doesn't want to share the details until we get to the end of the story. But it just wouldn't be the same.
We covet your prayers. We want to embrace community to join us on this journey to bringing these children home. Most of all, we want you to witness God's amazing power in all of this because ultimately this is ALL about Him and not about us.
It is a humbling place to be. Although we have always asked God to open our home and family to welcome as many orphans as He would entrust us with, we know we can't do this without Him. We are just a couple of people that are trying to live a life of obedience to our Heavenly Father.
