Many things are on the horizon. We are so...busy and are in need of much prayer. Please join us in prayer in the up coming weeks.

First, we are getting ready to leave the country for a few weeks on a vision trip. We will be in a Musl*m nation in Euro-Asia. Please pray for Gods safety, provision and guidance. We are hoping to connect with an unengaged people group that has no understanding of Salvation through Jesus Christ. Although our trip will be short, pray that the Lord uses this first work, to start a much bigger work among the lost of this nation.

Also please pray for our children while we are away. They will be staying with a close friend and are very comfortable there. Please pray for peace, comfort and safety for our kids while we are away from them. They all support us, but I am sure some are a little apprehensive.

Secondly, our daughter C~6, has a blood disorder. Before we brought her home, the Lord showed me in scripture that she would be fine, and that our faith had healed her. I still do believe that!! She had a yearly check up last week and her blood work was OK, however the levels of this disorder were high. There are no bad results to her, but it is not what we expected to hear. Pray for Gods healing touch on her body, where there are low levels or no levels. I know that the Lord is not done with her yet, and wants to use all of this to His glory. We want to give it all to Him as well and are praying for a miracle healing.

Lastly, our Children in Ethiopia need prayer. You have all read our updates and know the situation. God is good, and is providing. He is using you all too. We have had many people respond and sell stuff on Craig's list and donate money and items to our garage sale. I have also had people donate gold and diamonds. To date we have raised $18,000.00!! WE ARE OVER HALF WAY THERE. However, we are still NOT DONE and neither is God.

The Lord showed us in September that he was calling us to these children. This is not our extravagance, these are Gods children. Like my post said yesterday, this is our savior, and we are going to bed with full bellies, while The SAVIOR of the WORLD is going to bed hungry. How can this be?? God has invited us all on this journey with him. He wants us to trust Him and give more. He wants us to risk in HIS name and give more. He wants us to be Radical Givers, He wants us to be Radical Lovers, He wants us to be Radical Followers, He wants us to give more of ourselves, our time and our finances.

This is the action of giving freely of ourselItalicves, exampled by Jesus himself. We are to let our good deeds shine, so that God may be glorified. Caring for orphans Glorifies Christ!! Jesus show us how to put our love for Him into action (deeds) in Matthew 25:34 it says; The the King will say to those on His right hand, "Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me."....What you have done to the least of these my brothers, you have done unto Me.

We need about $17,000.00 more to bring these precious children home. Would you pray, and ask God what he would have you give to, feed, give drink, shelter, clothe and comfort Jesus, our savior. Some of you may be able to provide all that is needed to bring these kids home, some may only be able to give a small amount, ALL of you are important. It is not what we give it is with what condition we give it.

We are so excited to watch God work. It is so amazing to be able to share this adventure together and we thank you for supporting us. It is sometimes hard to step out in faith and be Radical for Christ! However, I would never want to miss out on the journey of a life time, there is no place I would rather be!!

Blessings to you all!
