As cold water to a weary soul,
So is good news from a far country.
Proverbs 25:25

We got the loooooooong awaited phone call this morning!!!
We leave on December 3rd for China!!!!
Praising and thanking our Father in heaven!
We are coming Piper!!!
There are 21 families going in our group.
I think 10 special needs and 11 healthy (might be reversed
I was to excited)
I think all the healthy families are going to Nanchang and
3 Special Needs families. I am not sure who yet.

Thank you everyone for your prayers!
Yesterday's devotional reminded me of a few the Lord blessed me
with in the past, especially one when I thought maybe we weren't
in His will.

Is anything too hard for the Lord? (Genesis 18:14)
Here is God's loving challenge to you and to me today.
He wants us to think of the deepest, highest, worthiest
desire and longing of our hearts, something which perhaps
was our desire for ourselves or for someone dear to us, yet
which has been so long unfulfilled that we have looked upon
it as only a lost desire, that which might have been but now
cannot be, and so have given up hope of seeing it fulfilled in
this life.
That thing, if it is in line with what we know to be His expressed
will (as a son to Abraham and Sarah was), God intends to do for
us, even if we know that it is of such utter impossibility that we
only laugh at the absurdity of anyone's supposing it could ever
now come to pass. That thing God intends to do for us, if we will
let Him.
"Is anything too hard for the Lord?" Not when we believe in
Him enough to go forward and do His will, and let Him do the
impossible for us. Even Abraham and Sarah could have blocked
God's plan if they had continued to disbelieve.

The only thing too hard for Jehovah is deliberate, continued
disbelief in His love and power, and our final rejection of His
plans for us. Nothing is too hard for Jehovah to do for them
that trust Him.
(From Messages For the Morning Watch)

I typed this in early this morning and before I posted it I was
blessed to find out our TA add finally come in!

Almost a year ago the Lord gave me took me right to this
verse in Genesis 18:14
Is anything to hard for the Lord? I will return to you at
the appointed time next year an Sarah will have a son.

He put on my heart that our daughter would be home
a year from that day. Whenever I would start to doubt
I always had this peace and remembered she would
be here by Christmas. We were told we would be leaving
in October yet the dates came and passed us by. I started
to get discouraged. Why? I started listening to people
instead of the promise my Father in heaven gave me.
We got our TA and were told we couldn't leave Nov. 19
no CA appts. were available. So we leave on December
3rd and we will be home December 18th. A year to the day
that He answered when I had prayed and cried out to Him
asking if we were in His will......... we will be getting home
with our daughter.
Thank you Father for your faithfulness
and forgive me for my unbelief.

The one who has called you is faithful and He will do it.
1 Thessalonians 5:24
