A Congolese Adoption Video
If you have any trouble viewing this sweet family's video here, you can watch it online @ http://youtu.be/-E2GDzxCBEg.
You can also read more about their adoption journey @ http://www.journeytocongo.blogspot.com/. They started the process in early 2010, so they were one of the very first families from the US to adopt from the DRC. You'll notice in the video that she mentions being in the country for 41 days! We've talked to our director about this & she reassured us that she chose the Attorney she did because he has done adoptions before & said he will have us in and out the country in 1-2 weeks. We know it is ultimately in the Lord's hands, so we are trusting Him with this! Enjoy the video! I just love watching God knit families together! I can't wait to see the faces of the children God has for us & officially get our referrals! Trusting that will happen in His timing.
And friends, one last thing: would you please join me in praying for our friends Justin & Bonnie? Join with me and our church family as we plead with the Lord for a MIRACLE to bring their 2 children home from Ethiopia SOON! And that the Lord would give them peace that surpasses understanding until that day comes!
We are having our 1st Team Meeting with our Both Hands team tonight! We are excited to get started with this awesome project that we get to be a part of! You can be praying with us that the Lord would provide abundantly for all we need through this adoption fundraiser! You can learn more about Both Hands in this post.
