PRAYERS!!!

We got the official word today that Isabella's file is "officially" lost at the US Embassy in Guatemala. They have given up looking. They think it accidentally got stuck to another file and is lost somewhere in the building. We spent 8 hours today re-creating our dossier. At one point, we had two cell phones and our home phone going at the same time trying to track down documents and figuring out exactly what the USE needs. Please, please pray that somehow God will see us through this very quickly. Only HE can make this come together!

This was the verse today that one of my students asked me to help him memorize. He highlighted it in bright yellow and brought it to me. The minute I read it I knew the Lord was trying to comfort me about our bad news with the Embassy~ and the fact that they may or may not approve her right now. The verse is from Deuteronomy 31:6. I am typing it from memory...

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,
For the Lord your God is with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.

We are praying with all of our hearts. It is the first thing we do when we awaken, the last thing we do before falling asleep and I pray everytime I think of you and precious Isabella.

Love,
Gina

Talk about the Lord using someone - you are blowing my mind! In the midst of one of the worst situations, you are able to minister to others. Stacy, you are truly set apart! I am praying for the Lord's hand to be all over the rest of this journey. You really are reflecting His glory right now!
Blessings~

Oh my goodness, I just can't believe this! Thank God you decided to open up that can of WA!! At least now you can move forward, although frantic I'm sure. Hang in there, sweets. I'm so sorry...although that seems so insignificant. It's time to get Bella home!
