We were so thankful for all of the ways that our friends encouraged and prayed for us during the week of Josiah's arrival! And I do thank you again! I was wondering if some of you would also consider praying for the needs of these families who are in need of encouragement and pray?
"In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints."
~For one of the families that we helped with a Hidden Treasures auction for, who brought their little boy, Adam, home last year. Last Saturday five year old Adam, who had a brain disease and did not respond well to surgery, went to be with the Lord.
~For Mommy's friend, who's little boy, Andrew, has a rare health problem, and has been in and out if the hospital for most of his life, and has recently been hospitalized again. And if you would like to help with the expense as his family tries to figure out how to help this little guy, his donation page can be found at the link above.
~For Meriam Ibrahim, who is in prison right now for her Christian faith with her two children, a newborn daughter and a twenty month old son, and separated from her husband, who is dependent on her for his care. There is a chance that she may be set free, praise the Lord! But if she is not, than she is to be executed as soon as her little girl is weaned.
And I have some praises to bring to you, as well :)! The Lord is so gracious to us. Praise him who gives us "Blessings untold, with ten thousand, besides..."!
~Our old SC house is finally out of Mommy' and Daddy's hands! This is a huge answer to prayer, and we thank you for those of us who have continued to pray with us for these many months on that account!
~The P.L.E.V.E.N. Project is up and running full time! There is a giveaway going on here, or you can just simply donate to the Leyla fund here. They are also trying to raise money to get some therapists into the orphanage, and there are five children with files waiting to be found by their families!
Thank you for taking the time to read this :). Blessings to you all!
