Would you like to partner with us in this journey God has called us on?

Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

Dear, dear friends and family,
We have filled out the initial online application to get things started with our Bulgaria adoption. This is truly a step of faith that we are taking, trusting God as we go.  Following George Mueller's example, we are "setting the table" and trusting that the Lord will provide.  We are going through the About A Child agency.

Some time soon next week we should have our telephone interview with them, and then proceed from there. We are praying that we can specifically request that our family be matched with Theodore, that I've pictured in a previous post. We are trusting God that He will open the doors and allow for Theodore's file to be brought back to the agency. 
I LOVE this photo! I picture it as Theodore jumping into Glenn's arms, or even us stepping out in faith and jumping into God's waiting arms! A photo like this TRULY is worth 1,000 words!

We are also trusting God for the finances to complete this adoption. We've included a new gadget on our blog called "chip in". This is where folks can donate money toward the cost of the adoption. Our first amount due is $3,500.00. It's the amount to commit to a child and start the process. "Chip in" donations go through pay pal, which is totally safe and secure!

Thank you all for taking the time to read our blog and our blog posts! Please feel free to forward our blog to anyone else that you think might like to read it! You can click on the label adoption or also on the label Rosie and read about God's mighty work in bringing Rosie to us earlier this year! At present we have 6 adopted children and we are excited that God is directing us to another! Who knows, maybe there will even be more than one that God will allow us to rescue from Bulgaria!

Speaking of rescued...have you seen the movie? Oh my...we saw it last year, and it was amazing! Please check it out! This truly inspired us to continue in this mission field!

Thank you all for reading! 
Have a wonderful evening!

Love to you all!

Oh! I just saw your link on Adeye's site and am so happy! He has been weighing on my heart all weekend and I have been praying like crazy for him. Praying that God will now move to bring him into your home.

I am SO happy to hear that Theodore has a family ready to commit to him! I actually talked to my husband about trying to adopt him but he reminded me that we are not in a place right now to be able to meet his needs. I gave to his fund at Reece's Rainbow... did you receive what was collected on his behalf? I hope you did. I will try and give more when we can and will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.
