We got TWO LOA's today!


AUGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Praise the Lord everyone! Today was the day He brought us our LOA's! Happy Happy Joyful Joyful!
And we got TWO LOA's! Isn't that just the neatest? I mean I guess I was just expecting both their names to be on one paper. So all this time I've been praying for our LOA...singular. Thankfully God knew I meant LOA's!!! He's probably thinking, "Bless her heart" right about now!
His timing is so neat and perfect. Of course. Why is that so hard to see when you're in the waiting place?
This morning Rob sent out a prayer e-mail to our prayer warrior friends and church members and family. It was requesting prayer for our LOA to come. 15 minutes later he had to send out another e-mail...PRAISING GOD FOR SENDING OUR LOA! Amazing. Amazing!
What a joyful time we had at Lifeline signing our names with gladness on those papers! I think if we had any more joy in Karla's little office, the walls would have fallen down!

It looks like we may have a great travel group (yay Kim, Buffi, the Masons and others!) and we are diligently praying for Mark and Lisa to be in our group too!!!!!!!

Have I mentioned how AMAZING God is? Regardless of anything...He is always amazing. May He be glorified throughout this whole adventure.

Laine,
This is just awesome. The only thing as good as getting our LOA and knowing that we will be getting our sweet Sadie soon, is knowing there is a HUGE possibility that we will be traveling together. God is SO awesome! It makes me feel so much better knowing God has placed all of us together going over to China! I'm so excited...for EVERYONE!!!
Love,
