meet beautiful Ashlyn- surrounded by her parents, three of her siblings and a representative from her orphanage.
let's celebrate as One, the redemption of another soul! sing Praise to the Almighty God who keeps His promises and loves us like no other can. He held this family in His protective hands while they journeyed through adoption. He leveled their mountains and made straight their path to their children. He called up the Body to raise the ransom money (they are still fundraising... http://loveisonthemove-hope.blogspot.com/) to make this possible. He provided help and family to care for the children still at home.
let us continue to pray for their safety while they travel in China over the next 10 days.
LORD, WE SEE YET ANOTHER FAMILY MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH YOUR GIFTS. YOU HAVE GIVEN REBECCA AND MATT COURAGEOUS HEARTS TO SERVE YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN. WE THANK YOU FOR THESE SPECIAL BLESSINGS. WATCH OVER AND PROTECT THEIR TRAVELS. MAKE SMOOTH THE OBSTACLES WHICH THREATEN FAMILY HARMONY. PLEASE TOUCH THEIR ADOPTED CHILDREN'S HEARTS WITH TRUST AND PEACE. PLEASE TOUCH THEIR BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN'S HEARTS WITH PATIENCE, PROTECTIVENESS, AND SELFLESSNESS. THINGS WILL BE DIFFICULT WHEN THEY TRANSITION BACK HOME. HELP THEM TO STAY FOCUSED ON YOU AND YOUR WILL FOR THEIR LIVES. THANK YOU FOR GIVING US GOOD EXAMPLES OF DISCIPLESHIP TO FOLLOW. HELP US TO LEARN FROM THEM. LET US STAND TOGETHER TO PROCLAIM THE GOOD NEWS. AMEN.
