Adoption Catch Up - God report

Here are several ways that we have seen God move, provide, and generally show off in the past week or two...

1.  Provision through family, friends, and t-shirt sales.  God has abundantly blessed us.  This is huge for us because with Peanut we had about 2 years to get financially ready.  This time it's about 6 months.  The rate of savings isn't quite the same but God has provided for those He has called.

2.  Participation of the Body of Christ.  People buying t-shirts and then passing along the word.  A church member who is painting crosses to sell to bring Maggie home.  Friends who show up at our house to hang out and keep our mind off other things.  Seriously:  "it is not good for man to be alone," and the past few weeks have shown we are not.  Amen.

3.  Information has been passed along to us without our inquiry and that we "don't normally get."  We have insight as to where we are in the process.  We have further insight into how we might speed things along.  All of this is mercy to us.

4.  People have asked about us and have prayed.  Genuinely and certainly have been in the trenches with us both personally and spiritually.  Thank you.

Here are the last few things where we need prayer coverage:

A.  Our key piece of paperwork (LOA) to arrive to our agency.  It sets in motion so much, but we're sort of on hold until it gets here.

B.  Maggie's health.  Jesus, sustain her and then heal her.  Amen.

C.  Perspective on all of this.  We don't want to miss out on anything while we wait.

Thanks from all of us,
Trent (for the family)
