Missing Jenifer

We would love to go to Haiti before the end of the year. Jenifer expressed in her note that she missed us and wanted to know when we will be back.

They say once you reach a certain age that the days fly by. Let me tell you that my days are not passing fast. It seems like it has been years since we began the adoption process. Actually, the papers were sent to our agent in Haiti in May.

God has given Bob and I a special bond with this child. We love her already as she is our own daughter. I saw a happy picture of her on Tasha Rae's blog. You can find her blog address on Jenifer was having fun with David Garrett of the Jax. Baptist Convention. David along with other Pastors recently traveled to Bercy. David loves the children and they love him.
Please pray with us on the adoption. By bringing Jenifer to America will also mean there would be room for one more needy child in Haiti to have the hope of shelter, food, clothing and an education at the children's home.

It is difficult at times to wait even when we know that God's timing is perfect. It has been two months since we have heard from the agency in Haiti. Even though we were told it may be months before we hear any news, I did email Ms. Barb requesting an update.
Recently, during rest, I dreamed we were at the children's home in Haiti with a mission group. I had been there for three days and realized I had not seen Jenifer. I woke up immediately seeking the peace and comfort of the Holy Spirit. In the letter we received from her in June, she told us that she missed us very much and wanted to know when we were coming back. Please pray for this child that she is content and God will give her the peace of knowing that we love her even though we are not there with her. But most of all, that she knows of His tremendous love and sacrifice.
What a blessing it was for us to go on the mission trip to West Virginia with the others from Suwannee County. I must say this was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Bob and I were on the evangelism team. Our team under the leadership of the Holy Spirit had the privilege of knocking on approximately 800 doors. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!
