I wanted to fill everyone in on some new developments in our story and some recent encouragements that we've experienced.
#1 I spoke with our lawyer doing our adoption of Kathleen and she is still unable to find Kathleen's mom. In the next week she will do the public announcement in the newspaper in Waynesville, MO for several weeks then we can petition the court to allow us to adopt Kathleen. A tentative date is the middle of June. We are happy to see the light at the end of this tunnel.....and we hope it is not the train:)
#2. Since our visiting the district council in Billings MT for the Christian and Missionary Alliance several churches have expressed interest in having us speak. We are speaking on 5/25, 6/1, 6/8, 6/22 and 6/29. We are traveling to Colestrip, Kalispell, Columbia Falls, Great Falls, and Helena. Of course we covet your prayers for safety and developing more and more prayer partners as we share God's story for our lives.
#3. We are also getting encouraging signs from other churches from MT to Baltimore regarding supporting us as well....This is very encouraging.
#4. The members of our home church continue to give us support. It is especially encouraging to see people being willing to volunteer to help us transition out of our children's church ministry.
I would continue to urge you to pray for us as we continue to follow God's plan.....for discernment, for planning our transition, for witnessing where we are, for enjoying God's timing and goodness as we follow him
