Some Peeps Need Prayer

Debra and her family need prayer for their Haiti adoption. They were taking their time through the process while she raised funds through photography, but some laws are about to change and if they don't get everything done in a couple of weeks they may no longer qualify to adopt their boy. He is already a part of their family even though he has never spent a night under their roof. This involves getting a ton of paperwork done and raising 4,000 more dollars. You can read more about it here. (See my new profile pic? That was Debra's handiwork.)

Patty, whom many of you know from the Siesta Fiesta, needs prayer for healing and provision. You can catch up on her story here and here.

My sister in law, Lindsay, has a 5-day-old baby boy. He is precious! The stomach bug is going around their family, so please pray that God will stop it in its tracks. It would be so unpleasant dealing with that while having all the normal post-partum pains and issues. Awful. Please pray for mommy and baby to be protected.

And a praise. I have been majorly stressing about finding a sitter for Converge on Thursday and the Lord provided today. Yeah!

More to come about our fun weekend...

We are praying here....I just said to the man last night that I felt like we needed to buy a couple of T-shirts from the Parker's...God has placed adoption on our hearts too. Until we can do that, we want to help those who are going through it right now...Thanks for keeping us posted on that!

Praise the Lord for getting a sitter for you! He is so good. :)

Hugs
