Thursday

45 Days...and counting...


No word on pre-approval. Today is 45 days and counting. I have to constantly give this back to the Lord lately, or I feel pretty defeated. Isabella is growing up without me...in an orphanage. Our Senator's office sent a third inquiry (one each month) to the US Embassy in Guatemala. The Embassy will not respond.


This. Is. So. Hard!


Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.

Psalm 20:7-8


Lord, give me strength, peace and joy in the wait that can only come from you. We wait for you patiently.

I agree... It is hard! This process is one of the most difficult things I have ever done! We know God is in control! I am telling myself that over and over! I admire your strength and your trust in the Lord!!

I will pause and pray right now for a PA for you! God hears our prayers!

Hang in there, your PA is coming I just now it. Praying you are one of the less than 60 day approvals! The Lord's plan is perfect even tho I often wonder what was He thinking! :) Sometimes He shows me down the road.

I am so sorry that y'all are STILL waiting. I keep checking your blog for the post "We got PA". I know that the Embassy will not respond to any "third party" inquiries because our senator's office has sent several emails as well. I am praying for you daily.
Love,
Meghan
