Calling All Prayer Warriors

We are within weeks of being matched with our daughter and are so excited to see all that God has in store. This last week we had the chance to go on a mini family vacation ( nathan needed to go to a work conference) So the boys and I tagged along, we all had the best time, and we also realized this will be our last trip as a family of 4. We were headed home on Wednesday afternoon and the mini van started to make some weird noises, so Nathan pulled over and he checked everything out, we made some calls and got the advise based on everything we could see the engine was going out and we were to just make it as close to home as possible then call for someone to come pick us up, the van finally died about 1 hour from home. I had spent the entire trip crying and just praying, telling myself that God know our circumstances better then we do, He is in control of all things. So this brings me to the title of this post , we are "Calling All Prayer Warriors" The van is officially dead and we don't have a vehicle that can fit 3 car seats in, and we are within a few weeks possible or being matched with our little girl which also means writing a check for $10,000. We are in need of $8,000 yet to reach our goal , and then we will have some expenses for travel. I am trying so hard to just leave all this at Jesus' feet and trust Him to supply our needs, He knows them even better then we do. Please pray that we will be diligent in seeking the Lord in all of this and that God will meet our needs for a vehicle and also for the adoption. Please don't take this as just a request for money, I just know that we need to have people joining us in prayer laying these things down before our Almighty God.
I know when all is said and done and this little one is home forever we will be able to proclaim the name of our Lord and say "Look and see what the Lord has done" not to us O Lord but to Your name be the glory.

  1. Praying for this situation. Its so hard not to fret and worry and try and figure out where the money will come from, but remember that nothing is a surprise to our Lord. He knew your van would die. He also knows where the money will come from. Enjoy this journey of trust. May you be amazed by his greatness and drawn closer to him. Love you!!!!
