If you couldn't take part this weekend.... PLEASE - give when you can.  Find some families who are adopting and HELP THEM.  

THE WINNERS OF THE NECKLACES ARE:  SYLVIA AND TANYA

Please e-mail me your address so I can get the necklaces sent to you!!!!

I can't even begin to tell you how grateful the families were for each and every donation sent their way.  It didn't matter if it was $5.00 or $50.00.  Each drop in the bucket brought smiles and hope.  Smiles and Hope.  THANK YOU.

--------------------------------------------

I know I PROMISED to share about Aaron's birthday and I will because he looks quite cute with icing all over his face.... but.... I need to ask for prayers on three fronts.... 

ONE


This is sweet Conner who just came home a few months ago.  He is in need of our prayers.  He has salmonella poisoning that has entered his bloodstream.  Please will you lift him up in prayer today???

TWO

Please pray for my friend Renee who is currently in process to get three babes out.  Renee is the one who has seen Everett and Olson...

  

Their one little guy, C, is in the same awful place (think concentration camp) as these two treasures.   The process has hit a HUGE brick wall and they may not be able to adopt their little one. PLEASE PRAY!!  Pray that the obstacles in their way would be swept away.  All these kids need out but the people in that area are NOT adoption friendly.  Please pray.  Pray for Renee's little guy, pray for these two treasures, pray for the other babes trapped in a world that has tossed them away. PRAY CHURCH PRAY!!

THREE

At the same time that their adoption has hit a brick wall.... Renee's main facilitator's world just came crashing down.  Her name is Sasha and she has a son... This was on Renee's FB last night....

From my friend Renee EMERGENCY PRAYER REQUEST: Please repost- we need every prayer warrior we know praying- our very wonderful facilitator, who has been helping us navigate this tricky adoption and fighting for our ability to adopt C in addition to M & R- her only son, just a preteen, fell out of a tree yesterday in a remote village in our region and was knocked unconscious- it split his head open. He was transported to the hospital here in region- very very bad, the only decent hospital is many hours drive away across bumpy bad road to the capitol city- here in region he had a "Craniostomy" if I heard correctly- some type of brain surgery. He has not still regained consciousness and the doctors can not say at this point if he will even live, much less if he will ever regain full function. It is literally life and death!!!!!! The hospitals are so bad here that the US EMbassy recommends an emergency evacuation to Germany if you get sick- yet this boy had surgery here in region :( :( :( It literally will take a miracle for this child to live- please please please join me in prayer, call your churches, call your prayer chains in your school groups- his name is Nikita- he is their pride and joy, a wonderful young man. We were with them all day yesterday, it happened while he was at a relatives. I just got a call from our sweet facilitator from Emma's adoption begging us to pray- they know our GOD works miracles.

HELP HELP HELP!!!!!!!

SO PRAY HARD.. PRAY LONG... PRAY FOR CONNER, FOR C, FOR EVERETT AND OLSON, FOR SASHA AND HER SON... PRAY THAT HEARTS WILL BE MOVED - CHILDREN WILL BE HEALED - JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!!!  

PRAY CHURCH, PRAY!!

    And a sincere thank you to the people who donated. We were surprised to see the donations and didn't know where they might have come from but I think we know now. We smiled and we are grateful.
