Time for the Thermal Nuclear Missiles

(A Christian saying “I’ll just pray” )…"That is like a a soldier saying, 'I don't have a machine gun and I don't have a bazooka.  I only have a thermal nuclear missile, I guess I'll just have to fight with this.'" -Stan Yoder

Will you pray with me today?

-The Donaldson family.  Angie and I have become dear friends through the adoption world. The Donaldson family started their adoption about the same time we started on The Littles’.  They have had quite the rollercoaster and God brought them two children off a waiting child list and have passed court! Sadly, the process has been painfully long and with no promised end in sight. They hurt for themselves, but hurt mostly for their children, who are institutionalized and confused. Please pray their children home and comfort for their children during the wait.  Follow their story at http://www.daveangdonaldson.blogspot.com/

-My sister, Kristen, leaves with Elise today to go to Ethiopia.  (Yes, I am a teensy jealous).  Kris and Elise both have counseling backgrounds. They are going to stay with Kevin and Erica, who serve sexually exploited women in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with Loving Shepherd Ministries Please pray for safety for their trip and the Spirit to work mightily through them in effectiveness for their trainings and travels.

-The Baker Family. This one is a giant praise!  Drew and Ashley received a referral for a precious baby girl on Friday!!! Follow their story: http://thebakercrew.blogspot.com/

-Jon and Amy G. Oh wait, that’s us...Do you know how sometimes life just feels really big?  We are praying through some “big” things.  Maybe someday I will tell you about it.  For right now, please pray for surrendered, humble hearts and clear direction.

Praying for all Amy, you too. You've been on my mind alot lately - maybe that's just God's way of providing for you in more ways than you knew.
