Have you ever been in an airplane that was ready to land but the airport was not ready. They send you into a "holding pattern" which means you fly around and around in circles until the ones in charge are ready for you to land. That is NOT where we are. In that case you are usually tired from the trip and restless from the flight and just ready to get off the plane. We are just the opposite. We are sitting on the runway waiting for the tower to give us the go ahead to take off. We are anxiously in our seats waiting for the trip and the destination that lies ahead.
We have seen so many answers to prayers since our last email.
We asked for prayer for the boys adoptions and things seem right on the edge of being completed.
We asked for prayer for the clinic and everything- that very day a doctor offered a lane of equipment that we might be able to get and use if it is what we are looking for. We were also told about a shipment of glasses lenses that may be available that would give us THOUSANDS of pairs of glasses lenses free of charge to use to make glasses.
The money was made available through some unforeseen profit from our business to buy our solar panel equipment and begin that process.
We still don't see the answer to prayers about the house selling or the other things we are praying about but that does not mean they have not been answered or in the process of being answered.
We truly believe BY FAITH that they are being answered. We may not can see the answer yet but 2 Corinthians 5:7 says we are to "walk by faith and not by sight". So I do not have to see the answer to believe it has been answered. Faith is believing it is so, when it's not so, because God said so. Good enough for me.
Logan and Philip are doing good in California. Pray for Logan, he is homesick. He has 6 more weeks in California and then they have the chance to go on a 2 month foreign mission trip. Right now Logan feels he doesn't want to be away another two months. We would love for him to go because we know God could really continue a great work in his life on the foreign field. But we trust that the Lord is in charge. Just keep him in your prayers.
We thank everyone for the commitments to pray. It really does make a difference and your faithfulness really builds our faith. Thank you - really! We do cherish each and everyone of you that have chosen to partner with us in this adventure in faith.
