~La Mariette aux Fraises~
by Albert Anker
I thought I'd give you a bit of an adoption update,
in case you're curious. We could definitely use
your prayers. Lately it seems like we are in a
battle, discouragement and despair of ever finding
a child is what we are struggling with these days.
I know that God wants us to stand firm, but
sometimes it's hard. At this time there aren't
any girls that would be a match for our family
in our state, most of them need a family with
no other children or only older children. So
we are looking at Adopt US Kids and have sent
out our homestudy for several different girls across
the country. It seems like kind of a long shot
that we would be selected for any of them,
but God knows. Thanks for praying for us!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can
take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
