24 Jan


Thanks for those of you who prayed for us.

My heart has been UGH…I don’t know the word,

just trusting and trying not to worry, but fleshy at the same time.

We heard TODAY that our social worker was able to petition on our behalf and the

State of Illinois will approve our homestudy  for Luke’s adoption.

So, I’m saying with the Psalmist: (72:24)

My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long,

for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.”

Wondering how many more road blocks we will encounter…


Lord, we pray for these kids at Gabe’s orphan home,

we pray that you would clear the way for them to come to their forever families.

We pray that you would strengthen Gabe and Connie for the work of caring for all those that they do

Hope for the “least of these”!


Connie (Gabe's wife who is running the orphan home where the boys are) and Joseph, Mike and Sasha's son...coming home soon, we pray!!

    Praise God! So thankful – we are echoing the words of Paul in 1 Thessolonians 5:16 for this wonderful news … ‘rejoicing, praying, and giving thanks for the will of God’!
