We covet your prayers as we begin this last part of the journey to bring home Vika. We have been under attack already and know that there will be more trials along the way both at home and for us in Vika's country. We know that our God is bigger than the devil who will do anything he can to keep us from doing God's will or being the testimony and light that we have a chance to be. We are thankful to know that so many of you are praying for us and we do need your prayers more than we can tell you. Specifically, please pray for a QUICK court date and an easy process while in Vika's country. Pray for our girls as this will be a challenging time for them. Pray that they will adapt easily and make it as easy as possible on those taking care of them. :) Pray that they will stay healthy while we are away. Pray for Wanda and Derick and their family as they add four more girls to their family and sacrifice so much for us! Pray for my sister, Becky, as she will come up to take on four little girls for a few days! Please pray for little Vika as she gets to know us and we get to know her. She has never learned how to love and to be loved, so we expect this to be a difficult transition for her. Pray that we can reach her heart and show her what true, unconditional love is. And pray for every detail of our journey that in everything we do the Lord would get all the glory, and that we will have the opportunity to share God's love with many both here at home and in Vika's country.
Thank you for having such an instrumental part of our journey! We do not take any of you for granted and are blessed beyond measure that God brought you into our lives! Lord-willing, I will keep you updated daily while we are away. I leave you with a Mother's Day picture until then!
