Psalm 105:1-5 "Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles. and the judgments he pronounced."

Psalm 126:3 "The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."

God is at work around us. He is powerful, He is our mighty fortress, He loves us and He has done great things for us. Le us praise Him. Let us love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind.

We are still waiting....waiting for a court date that God had planned from the beginning of time. We have had many spiritual attacks in the last few days. I am refusing to be discouraged. I am doing my best to keep my eyes fixed upon my Lord and Savior.

** We are rejoicing that our friends Tim and Leala, who are adopting Melody and Joseph from Amani Baby Cottage, just received their court date for March 10. We are so excited and praise God.
** Our friends Deke and Erryn are adopting two children from Uganda. They have an amazing story of how God has led them to these precious siblings, Bosco and Nancy. Read their blog to see God's fingerprints all over their lives...
I will be travelling with Erryn and her mom, Cheryl, to Uganda. If it's God will, we will be bringing home four children!!
** Our friends Jordan and Lacey have been extremely supportive and encouraging through the entire process of our adoption. Just recently we found out that Lacey will be travelling with us to Uganda! It is such an incredible joy and blessing to have friends that love the Lord and with whom we can do life together.

So there are four of us going to Uganda, and we will make our flights as soon as Todd and I receive our court date. Erryn and I will be appearing before separate judges and awaiting their approval to bring home our children. We will also have to obtain visas and passports. Although our priority is meeting with the officials and receiving our positive court ruling, we will also be meeting the needs of the Uganda people. We are collecting Bibles, toothbrushes and other hygiene items, medicines, flip flops, bouncy balls...basically anything we can squeeze into our luggage to bless the children and families of Uganda. We are so excited for this trip, we can hardly contain ourselves. Please cover us in prayer.

Psalm 150 "Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord."

Proverbs 21:1 "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases."
