Spiritual Counseling & Encouragement from a Delta Representative???

Weird title, huh? Ya, I know! Kirk had the most interesting conversation today with a Delta Airlines rep. while he was making flight arrangements for an upcoming visit trip to see Isabella. She said on the phone that she could tell there was "light" in his voice, and the Holy Spirit was showing her that he was a Christian. Okaaay, that was cool! Kirk then told her that we are traveling to visit our daughter that we are adopting in Guatemala. Then she said she needed to tell him something (Kirk grabbed a pen and paper at that time). She said, "What we believe in our hearts... is going to happen. God promises to fulfill what He started. We may be running into problems because of spiritual warfare. We have to remember that we are bringing her into God's family and out of enemy "territory". She is a child of promise." She ended their conversation by saying that she would pray for our adoption like crazy.

Um, that was seriously amazing! Kirk said that after their conversation he felt like he knew better how to pray. There's no doubt that God will get all the glory when our sweet Bella is home! Keep praying with us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I just stumbled on your blog via another blog (hope you don't mind) My husband and I are currently in the adoption process as well and we are anxiously waiting to bring our daughter home from Guatemala. She is currently 10 months old. Your last post was so true and exactly how we are facing our adoption. We know God has big plans for her and will bring her home soon. Please feel free to visit our blog at burtonsadventures.blogspot.com.
I will keep your case in my prayers as well as ours.

Your faith lifts my heart. So does that Delta rep. I love to know those who are unafraid to allow God to speak through them even when they can't see why it is so important. Praise God for using this person to lift you up.

Thank you for your sweet comment on our blog. I have been reading your blog and looking at the beautiful pictures of your daughter! I loved this latest post of yours and could totally imagine what an encouragement it was for your husband to encounter another Christian through Delta of all places. :) I will be praying for your adoption process and can't wait for you to bring home that sweet bundle of love!
P.S. Have you checked out the McMurray's blog by chance? I'm assuming you know them or came across their recent Guatemalan adoption story too... it's beautiful to see the work of God's hands through all of this!
