I have linked to this blog (today's post) before.
They are a family of four, attempting to become five through adoption. Here is sort of an introduction post.
I don't know these people, but I like what I read. They seem to be in similar places in their thoughts about ministry and life as foreigners in a new land. The dad does most of the blogging for this family, he is a runner and a Doctor. Check them out & pray for them when you have time. They've been in Kenya for two years. They seem like the real deal.
Last Monday we said this:
"We learned some news yesterday that has put us into prayer mode. We will likely have a big decision to make in the next few months and ask that for now you would just pray that the Lord would give clear answers and direction. Eventually we'll share more. For now we don't want to hear any opinions except God's so it is easier just to ask for prayer for our discernment and God's will and not share the details yet."
This Monday we feel like we have a plan for moving forward. We are going to cautiously move ahead and trust that if we are on the wrong path, the Lord will shut doors in our faces. As a matter of fact, that is what we are asking Him to do if we're wrong.
If you could keep praying for wisdom and discernment we would really appreciate it. For us, as with most people, the hardest thing is not knowing what will happen or how God will answer. We also know that in all other times where we waited on His answers, and trusted them to be for the best, we were blessed beyond measure. Either way, we cannot lose. (Bondye konn. He knows.)
More details later this week when we have time to lay it all out there for you. Thanks for praying. As always, please email us if we can be praying specifically for any concern of yours.
