While washing dishes or hanging laundry, I find myself thinking what it will be like to have more little plates and cups to wash and of all the t-shirts and socks that will fill the clotheslines to the max. I find myself almost giddy at the thought of more work and less sleep, knowing that this is the good and perfect will of God.
We have all the paperwork in process to obtain Special Permanent Residency. This allows us to not have to leave the country every 90 days to renew our tourist visas, it also leads us to the next step in the process. We will be resistering our organization in Honduras. We are praying for a quick and timely approval of both of these items. We are praying because once approved, we can begin to enlarge our family as well.
The way as I understand it, once the children are removed from their current situations, all legal ties are cut from the family, they will be placed in places like our home. At that time, the child will be signed into the custody of Kevin and I personally. We will have all the responsibility of providing and caring for the child until they are of a legal age. It is sadly very rare that a child is ever able to be placed back with their birth family.
Please keep praying for our family.
God is answering needs before we even know to ask for them. We already have 10 tubs of new and gently used childrens clothes that have been given to us. We know that as children are placed, they will most likely have only the clothes they are wearing when they arrive.
With the increase in legal costs and the costs we are anticipating in the near future, we are looking to increase those of you who support us financially on a monthly basis. If you are currently supporting us monthly, you need to know how much of a blessing it is to the work here. If you are considering supporting us, please pray that now is the time to partner up with this work. Please contact Kevin or I on how God is directing you to participate.
If you want to plan to come down and help, we would love to talk about coming!
