You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Getting excited!!!!

Wow, so excited! Can't hardly stand it. Feel like a kid on Christmas Eve! ;-) Only one more night til travel-two til we get there! (due to a lengthy lay over)

Got lots to do today. Packing and organizing supplies-thanks to all who donated stuff for the orphanage! This could not be done without your help, so THANK YOU!

Last minute errands to run, lots of them. :-)

The dossier is complete. I have the blank forms I need to fill out while we're down there for our DHS (Department of Homeland Security) appointment while we are there. Pray for this process to go smoothly.

I have the camera. :-)

Your prayers are appreciated-while we travel and always.

Pray that this is a God filled trip.

Pray for the entire team. There are several youth going on this trip-giving up their spring break fun to serve God. Pray for any of the first time folks dealing with anxieties. Pray for stamina and good health and good sleep for everyone.

Pray for the projects and work that is planned.

Pray for the fun and crafts/activities that are planned.

Pray for the children, their birth and adoptive families.

Pray for the staff at the O. Give thanks for the awesome nannies who love on and take care of the children.

Give thanks for a child and his adoptive mother being reunited after more than a year apart, and that he gets to come home, finally!

Pray for us as we spend time with the boys and as Bob meets them for the first time.

Pray for God to keep His hand on our dossier, our family-the entire process. We pray for super-naturally fast movement through this process, yet at the same time trust God's perfect timing, whatever that may be.

We thank God for you. We appreciate your prayers.

In the morning, as Jesus was returning to Jerusalem, he was hungry,
and he noticed a fig tree beside the road.
He went over to see if there were any figs on it,
but there were only leaves. Then he said to it,
"May you never bear fruit again!"
And immediately the fig tree withered up.
The disciples were amazed when they saw this and asked,
"How did the fig tree wither so quickly?"
Then Jesus told them, "I assure you, if you have faith
and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more.
You can even say to this mountain, `May God lift you
up and throw you into the sea,' and it will happen.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
Matthew 21:18-22

They all met together continually for prayer,
along with Mary the mother of Jesus,
several other women, and the brothers of Jesus.
Acts 1:14



  1. Praying for that stamina!!! What an awesome opportunity!

  2. I can't wait to see the pics and hear all about this trip, but I am MOST looking forward to seeing Steeve with Bob! That boy needs a daddy something fierce! I just know he's going to love his papa!

    Have a safe and blessed time!
