VISA Interview SCHEDULED!


Last night I knew I just needed a moment to myself...and a moment to just let my tears flow out. So I slipped away quietly into Gracies room, I sat on her floor and held her picture in my lap. My tears rolled down onto her photo. I needed time ...a time to just spend with God...a time to just have silence and pray!! Being a mom, I knew I would not be able to be away long before soemone would notice! After a little bit .... Amanda found me, and said "oh mommy what are you doing"? Then she sat with my quietly and we hugged. It was ok for her to see my cry! Soon after here came Bailey .....Then a little later Terry found us all sitting on her floor! Next thing you know we are all on her bedroom floor. I asked my family to lay hands on Gracies picture and pray for her as a family. So we did. It was an awesome time of prayer. We asked God to please bring us good news Friday! We prayed He would move mountains to bring her home.


When Terry came home for lunch today...He called DC. Great news!! Gracies Visa Interview Is Scheduled for March 30th, Monday at 1:00pm. !!!! Korea is one day ahead of us. So we will be praying for this to go smoothly. Sunday our time is MOnday there time. Please join us in prayer.

This means that typically after the VI they will call us within 24-48 hours for travel!!!! OH MY GOODNESS! We are so Grateful!!! God does move mountains!! We just have to ask! When we get the travel call we will let you all know!!


On Thur morning I recieved a sweet email from my great friend Vicki. It really meant alot to me and was a great reminder. "Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths” Proverbs 3:5


It means so much to know so many people are praying for us! Thank you!!
