Karina's Adoption Story Part II - Home Study is Complete!!
Storey Grace keeps asking when her sister is coming back home!
God continues to bless us in this journey. Our home study is complete and has been sent to US Immigration for approval. Please pray that we would get approval from immigration and that this next step will move quickly.
We received a letter from Karina a few days ago. She is doing well but misses us and looks forward to the day when we come to get her. Thank you for your prayers regarding her adoption.
We want to thank Anderson Ulerich (4 years old) from French Camp for praying for Karina! He prays for her and helps his mom bake cookies that he sells to help raise money for the adoption. Anderson tells people about Karina - an orphan in Ukraine - and then asks people if they want to buy a cookie that he made to help her come home. Thanks, Anderson! We appreciate you!
By God's grace we desire to live our life to serve and glorify Jesus. He is our treasure. He is the one we trust. He is the one we love.
We are a family of eight praying that God will use us to minister to orphans around the world and encourage Christians to reach out in mercy to orphans. At home we serve with Palmer Home for Children. Palmer Home is a ministry to children who are growing up as social orphans without the nurture and support of a loving family. Palmer provides a stable, Christ-centered home for these children. Internationally we serve with Share the Hope. Share the Hope ministers to orphans around the world. Both at home and around the world we proclaim good news of Jesus Christ and reach out in mercy to these precious children. We hope that this blog is a testimony to you of God's mighty hand and that you are encouraged to serve Jesus with all your heart and to reach out to orphans.
Matthew, Sheila, Karina, Harrison, Isaac, Noah, Storey Grace and James!
