We may not be able to save every child, but we can respond one at a time. Do not be discouraged by numbers, but instead be encouraged that when we feed, visit, love and clothe an orphan- we did it for Christ. I tell you the truth- whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40

Our Friends WAIT is over

I am truely amazed at how God works. I havent talked much about our circle of friends however God is stirring and I can't keep it quiet. Our friends Joe and Becky Bilby have been waiting almost 3 years for a daughter from China. Well frineds the wait for this amazing family is over. God has blessed them with a very special 3 yr old girl. Her name is Jada Faith Bibly and I can't wait to met her. 3 years is a long time but they put their faith in God and once again he completed a perfect plan.

I love this quote by Chuck Swindoll: “God never forgets anything He promises. That’s right…never. God’s agenda continues to unfold right on schedule, even when there is not a shred of evidence that He remembers. Even when the most extreme events transpire and “life just doesn’t seem fair,” God is there, carrying out His providential plan exactly as He pre-arranged it. He keeps His word.”

Sometimes God's timing seems delayed. Sometimes it seems God has forgotten.

But rest assured dear friends - He has not forgotten. The same God who knit you together, is with you today. Waiting. Watching. Letting His plan unfold one day at a time. While we want to know the entire picture, we want to know the ending, that is not for us to know.

If we knew the ending of our story, if we knew when our waiting season would conclude, or our suffering would be over, we wouldn't be forced to kneel before the throne and pour out our hearts to God. We wouldn't be forced to desire the Lord above all else.

He has made everything beautiful in it's time.
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Congratulations Joe, Becky, Micah, Caleb, Aaron, Chloe and Jada Bibly and Thank You GOD for another plan finished to prefection. We love you Lord!
