Chosen Before Time: Our Journey to Baby E

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed un in Christ...even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, ... In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1:3-7

Dossier on the way!!!

"For by him all things were created, ...all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together."
Colossians 1: 16-17

We received an email yesterday, October 18th, that our dossier in on the way to Ethiopia! The official wait time from here is 6-8 months until we receive our referral. Please pray with us that we and all involved will be "filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding...may we walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God." Colossians 1: 9-10

Abundance from Him

"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forevere and ever. Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21

On September 12, 2010, Matt and I were blown away by God's abundant gift to us from our church family. During the evening worship service, the church celebrated the 5 years we have been at Wynne Baptist Church. It was such a sweet service and time of worship with our brothers and sisters.
We were overwhelmed when the church presented us with a check-- A check that should pay for the rest of our adoption of Baby E! God has so richly provided in so many ways. He is the Giver of ALL good things. We were humbled by the graciousness and thoughtfulness of our church family. Matt and I are still blown away and find it hard to comprehend the depth of this gift. We thank you WBC for loving us and for loving the nations. To God be the glory! Great things He hath done and promises to do! May we be found faithful.
