We are so excited to share our Ethiopian adoption adventure, and our CRAZY lives with all of you! Our hope is that it will encourage you to step out in faith to do what God has called you to do! There are FIELDS of fatherless children waiting for someone to care for them, to love them, to tell them of JESUS' love for them...will YOU be the one??

Africa or BUST!

Today I'm linking up with my bloggy friend Linny over at aplacecalledsimplicity.blogspot.com, to let you all know our prayer requests as we begin a new journey to Africa!

We have our homestudy ready(for one child/twins up to 12 mos) and our agency picked out...and the country...well, it WAS(IS) Ethiopia.

That said:)...here are our prayer requests:

1. Ethiopia....we're struggling to turn in that application with all that is going on, but the cry of 5 million orphans can't be stopped, playing over and over in my head! We need CLARITY...FAITH....to make this leap!

2. Siblings/twins....yes, that's right, I really have this feeling that it's supposed to be TWO babies! BUT...we NEED the extra income to make this happen! The enemy has in fact, been working extra hard in this area lately...and we have actually LOST income...so please pray for the extra needed to meet the requirements!

3. Uganda....we have looked extensively at Uganda as an alternative...the travel is 3 1/2- 4 1/2 weeks!! Not sure at all if we could do this...BUT GOD!!:) We would need absolute peace(and a few signs;)) if this is the route the Lord wants us to take.

I absolutely LOVE Africa and we are so excited to be able to rescue one(or two) of these precious ones! Would you join us in prayer? And if you want to be a part,financially, of bringing our daughter/son home, you can donate through the link on the top left!
