Thanks for your support of our adoption journey. We would love for you to join us in praying that God would give us wisdom, patience and perseverance as we go through the process to adopt our children! We appreciate the many people walking this adoption journey with us in prayer! ~Jon & Bethany

A Grant Update

We have heard back from Hand in Hand, a Christian foundation, where we applied for a matching grant. They are passing our grant application onto their Board and we should hear by May 20th if we get approved or not! Would you please join us in praying & asking God for grant money from Hand in Hand! So far we have only applied for one other matching grant, through Lifesong. With our basement problems deterriorating some of our savings, it would be super helpful and awesome if we were able to get some matching grants!  To God be the glory!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:6-7

"When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all." Psalm 34: 17-19

Praying that the peace of God, which surpasses understanding, would surround us right now as we pray for our children & try to figure out where the next $14,000 is going to come from!! We can't wait to get our referrals, but also realize that the Lord may be delaying our referrals to give us time to fundraise so we will have that money when it is due!! We are also praying that we would TRUST in the Lord, in His word- that He hears our cry for help!
We've heard it said that "the Lord FUNDS what He FAVORS," and we know He favors adoption & orphan rescue! We are just praying that we can trust in the timing & ways of His provision!
We still have plenty of our Adoption Fundraising Shirts if you want to get one to support our adoption!

Thank you to everyone who has been encouraging us lately!! We really appreciate it and, honestly, we need it!
