Thank You!

We are so blessed.  People have been popping up and handing us money, using the chip in and sending it through the mail.  The other day at church, Bill ended up with a twenty dollar bill, and has no idea who gave it to him!  We have turned our finances over to God, he knows how much money we need and when we need it by.  God truly does pour out his blessings when you need them.  He doesn't give excess, God's not into waste, but he gives you what you need.  

Please keep us in your prayers.  Not only for the blessings we need financially, but also this is the week Calliandra goes from her beloved Bethel back to her orphanage in Hefei, Anhui.  She'll be traveling Thursday in the company of one of her teachers from Bethel.  I am so glad she'll have someone who loves her accompanying her.  It's scary enough as it is, but if she'd have to do it without her teacher it would be much worse.  So prayers for travel mercies for her, and peace during the journey for her.

Ohh, it breaks my heart to know she has to be uprooted out of Bethel to go to the orphanage. We will be praying for her and your family as well. Good news is.. it's not much longer! I can't wait to see her in your arms:)

I know how hard it is to know that Calliandra is leaving Bethel. I thought we were going trough that with Jenna and Rosanna, and I know how upset we were. Our prayers are with you and her until you are finally together.
