“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Our precious friends are days away from traveling to Ethiopia to meet their son! Yes, several friends have been to the transitional home to see him and take pictures for her, but this time dad, mom, and their oldest two children are going to MEET him!
Tomorrow, November 11 is a big day in their little guys life, you see that is the day that his mom will be going to court to relinquish her rights of this precious little boy that she brought to the orphanage just over a year ago. She is making a sacrifice that she knows is in the best interest of this precious boy, a sacrifice that is far greater than most of us can imagine. She has said that her desire is for her son to have a home, for him to become an architect and she desires for him to have a future of hope.
Would you please lift her up in prayers? Pray for her as the enemy will feed her lies over the next few hours, weeks, months and likely years to come. Pray the Lord would come to her in a mighty way to show her that her sacrifice was blessed immensely and that this precious little guy is going to the most amazing home where he will be given a future of hope.
Please pray over the precious family who longs to bring him home, they are nervous and anxious but know and understand they are in the Lords hands!
The orphanage is responsible for bringing her to Addis Ababa and while I have not been to this third world country I am sure it is similar to Ind&a and the six hour drive could be interesting so pray for safety during their travel!
This will happen while we are happily resting our heads on our pillows, so pray up thru out the day!!
In honor of them, this is my outfit of choice, wrinkles and all!
