Update from November 21, 2008

What is special about 11/21/08? Nothing really. Except I posted a post with some prayer requests on it, and I don't know if you readers prayed for any of the families that I mentioned, but if you did- God has answered a lot of those prayers! So here is a little update, cause it's always great to know how God is working in our midst:

The Vs: still not pregnant. Apparently there is need for surgery for the severe endometriosis that Mrs. V has. BUT praise Jesus cause they 'have' a new adopted little boy from Haiti! They are very excited to meet him one day soon. BUT the paper work and the hoop-jumping involved makes the process long and tedious. Some people who have adopted Haitian babies have had to wait two years before meeting their baby. Please continue to pray for them as they wait, but praise Jesus cause He is good!

The Bs: are so pregnant! After two years of faithfully waiting their turn, my beautiful friends Mike and Cindy are very much pregnant with a very healthy little girl. And the amazing added sprinkles on the story is that Cindy's sister Christin is pregnant with her second girl, so the cousins will be about a week apart. That's not something any of us prayed for, it's just something awesome that God schemed up on his own. What a special gift.

The Ts: are doing well. They are waiting till November until they are allowed to try again. Apparently after a molar pregnancy you CANNOT try to have another baby for an entire year. Though it's been hard, God has certainly been using the Ts and blessing them and teaching them lots of stuff about Him. Please continue to pray for them.

The Zach: is so great! I don't even know how many surgeries and visits to the hospital he has had in his year and almost-a-half long life. But he is doing so great, and so is his sweet little family. God is good.

Thanks again if you have prayed for those who are so near and dear to me. Prayer is so real, because the God we serve is so very real. I don't know where I would be without Him. Please let me know if there is anything I can lift up in prayer for you.
