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

Prayer requests/praise report

Our online hand crafted jewelry auction is going well. Click here to check it out. Please help to spread the word about this auction.

The jewelry has also been a big hit, when I've showed the other stuff off in person. God's provision is amazing-we always have what we need when we need it. Pray that I will remember that in times of stress!

As you can see, from the "Fundraising News" on the side bar, we are making progress! It's fun to update the total raised.

Thanks so much to Aunt Darlene for donating her lovely creations to help fund our Adoption Adventure.

This weekend, we are having a garage sale and are excited about it. Please pray for the people attending and for it to go well and be successful. Many people/families donated some good stuff and we have a few "big ticket" items we are hopeful about. We also love to share (ie talk talk talk) about what God's doing in our life through this Adoption Adventure.

I am preparing to return to Haiti soon-praise God that we did finally get our DHS appointment and the "missing" paperwork has been located. Pray for this to go well, for us, for the birth parents and let's get this process going in Haiti!

Pray for our finances, stamina and protection from illness, and good solid sleep while I am traveling. Pray for my hubby as he is quite sad and disappointed that he cannot go on this trip. Pray that I get to this appointment and things go smoothly/get accomplished this time.

Thank you for your prayer support. It means the world to us.

God is great.


  1. Your entire process is covered in prayer my friend. I especially pray your fundraisers are HUGE successes!

  2. So glad they found "the paper." Praying all goes great w/ the fund raisers!


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.

Thanks again!
