Renae sent me a text today it said, "Your match has been approved by all. Just waiting to hear when we will get the referral paper work." I have to admit this text brought excitement and disappointment at the same time. I just want that dag, gone referral already! I'm feeling so impatient and hopeless these days. That's not a comfortable place for me to be in since I am usually a happy, optimistic person.
So what it means is that we still have no idea is our referral letter has even been drafted yet. Once drafted Mme Villedrouin needs to sign it, then it can be sent to Renae who will then send it to translations which takes another week or so to get back….whew…. Anyway, I am grateful that there is some news!
I posted this song today because I need it. Life sometimes just gets tough and it's hard to tell what is going on. It's the hottest time of the year, upper 90's*, and our AC goes out. Our furnace is old too so they both need to be replaced. We are waiting on our impending referral to go to Haiti, so the timing of paying for a for new AC and furnace just isn't great. I am confident that God will provide, but I will admit it is a bit scary. Our church has been such a blessing to us. They helped us raise the last big chunk of $$ for our travel and they have been super helpful while we've been without AC. I can see God providing already.
My prayer is that this circumstance will be used for His glory and for His gain. What a testimony of God's provision. Our adoption, our life for that matter! His is the One above it all. He stands alone He's the God over ALL!
