God calls for more patience.

Hello dear friends. We have found out today that God is asking us for some more patience. We had originally been told that the courts in Ethiopia were going to remain open during their rainy season. However, we just found out that they are now already closed. This means that the soonest that we could receive a court date would be in October. Then we could go and get the kids in November or December. This is not horrible news, but we do long to bring these children home. Please pray that we would find out about Makyra's paperwork soon and get a court date as soon as the courts reopen. Please pray that we would be patient and trust that God is working all things together for our good.

Lamentations 3:25-26
"The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD."

We will definitely be praying for you guys. You are an encouragement to us both. Praise the Lord that, even in a time when grumbling and questioning is easy to do, you are seeking patience and trusting in Him. We love you guys!

I'll definitely be praying for you (and Stacey) and the kids!! I have been anxiously waiting to hear the good news, but as like you have said, "God calls for more patience". If you both need anything, please call me!!

We are so sorry guys and will be praying that the Lord would allow you to get these children soon. I know this is so hard, but believe me you will soon forget the long hard wait once you get those babies home.
