Our partners the Howertons are going through the adoption process in Romania. The Lord chose not to grant custody on January 29th because of a county jurisdiction question. The Howertons have applied for a new date in a different county. Please pray for a short wait for a date, for the granting of custody, and for four-year olds Gina and George who really don’t understand why they have to stay at the orphanage instead of going home to be with their new mom and dad. If you would like to learn more about this, please read more here.
Many of you prayed for our vehicle situation. And many went even further by offering excellent advice, and in some cases by offering to help financially. We want to thank all of you for everything that you did and to fill you in on the Lord’s overwhelming provision. A family in one of our supporting churches gave us a 2005 Toyota Highlander. It is beautiful, reliable, has heated-seats and in short is evidence of our Lord providing not just for our needs, but of His pouring out His lavish blessing on our heads. We praise Him for this gift and ask that you pray that we steward it well. A fuller testimony will be coming shortly in our January prayer letter.
