no news

That whole concept of "no news is good news"...yeah, that's a lie!  Our dossier has officially been in Honduras for over a year.  Two sets of updates that Honduras required have been sent.  The waiting list still does not have our name on it.  Next month marks two years since we began this 12-18 month process.  12-18 months has grown into a projected 4 years.  IHNFA is currently on strike.  We are hopeful that they will meet next week and issue some wait list of them being ours. 

I would be lying if I told you that discouragement hasn't set in.  Times of questioning God have crept in.  I've just wrapped up a Beth Moore study {The Patriarchs}.  Abraham and Sarah waited 10 years for a partial fulfillment of their promise from God with the birth of their son, Isaac.  They did not see the complete fulfillment of their promise in their lifetime.  Hebrews 11:13 says, "All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth."  That is the kind of faith that I that I am sure God is developing in me through this situation.

In the meantime, we are anxiously awaiting the blessing of baby boy #4 in just six weeks!
