Great News Times Two

 Fantastic news was delivered via e-mail:

1.)  Overcomer's health is greatly improved.  His dietician was encouraged by his marked improvement.  It seems more of his dietary needs are being met.  Praise God!

2.)  We received word through our agency that we could possibly be traveling to Ghana this month for court!  Yes, really!!  This would be the first of two trips to Ghana.  We would appear in high court asking for the grant of a full adoption decree.  (Please pray for this!)  Once that is granted, we must file for visa with the American Embassy in Ghana.  After the visa to bring Overcomer home is approved, we would return to finally bring him home.  Excitement is an understatement!  The boys are overjoyed at the reality we could possibly be with him soon. 

Nothing is definite, so I am trying not to get my hopes up.  However, things are rolling toward our adoption of precious Overcomer.  What an amazing blessing!  My mind dwells on him constantly.  I can not wait to hold him in my arms.

Every morning it seems at least one of the boys shares about a dream of meeting him.  We pray for him, Samuel, Helen, Baby Christopher, and Baby Cousin Hall every-night!  Our hearts are tied to the opposite side of the world these days.  Would you join us in prayer?

Several friends are facing difficult trials - a young boy battling cancer for the second time, a marriage headed for divorce, addictions controlling lives, discouragement, financial hardships, etc...  Many need the HOPE of Christ.  If you know someone hurting, would you give them some extra love today?  Please cast your eyes around your circle of friends, and recognize those needing some encouragement and hope.  As a friend reminded me, please pray for those you love.  "Prayer is the work."

If you are willing to pray for us, we would treasure it as well.  Our three top prayer requests are:
1.)  For God's Glory Alone - He would receive all of the glory and honor due Him.
2.)  For Godwin's Health - For God's healing hand to be upon him for complete healing if that is the Lord's will.
3.)  For God's Provision - For God to "supply all our need according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Phillippians 4:19-20

We are grateful for your prayers -

"Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne."
Revelation 8:3
