Living Faith

Noah was surrounded by people who wanted to dissaude and detract him from following God's call in his life. Noah acted in faith to God's call even though what he was called to do went against common sense and the "rules". Noah ran his race with the intent to win. He did not worry about public opinion. We can look at Noah's life for guidance when it seems we are the only ones walking a certain path; running an only course. We are not alone in our faith. God will always be there to guide and help through life's many storms and trials. An active and living faith can at times require actions that may seem new and uncomfortable, but the rewards are eternal.

It's all in the timing

"For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay."

Habakkuk 2:3 ESV

Our adoption agency has given us the opportunity along with several other families to tell our story to CCCWA, China Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption.

This is an opportunity for us that walks a few steps further down a path we felt led to pursue a year ago.

Please pray for me as I write this letter. Please pray for our family, the CCCWA, and our adoption agency.

I want to be able to clearly articulate the perfect placement of our daughter Chloe, the joy she has brought into our lives, how she has thrived with us, how her life was saved by Denver Children's hospital, the lives she has touched here, the fact that she would not have survived at all if it were not for the orphanage director and the lovely ladies at Jinjiang SWI. I need to stand out among the other thousands of adoptive parents that will be sending letters.

The lives of two little boys can have a change for the better through this letter. Two boys that we have been trying to get home for over a year now.

We have had many doors shut in our faces but with perseverance we have marched. We have found that God's timing is everything.

I have delayed writing letters to various people in China because I did not feel like the timing was right. On Wednesday, I was asked to write a letter and with your prayers I proceed this noon time hour. This hour of of feeding, ministering, nurturing, providing, encouraging.

I pray I can do that for these two boys born of our heart.
