Abi, Miguel, and Ever: the kite is attached to the fishing pole and soaring high!
We have also gotten word that the family of six will still be able to come. They are likely to arrive anytime this week. There will actually only be five of the siblings with them because the youngest one is currently separated as multiple families are attempting to adopt him. Paraguayan law states, however, that siblings are not to be separated, so the adoptions are being contested. Please pray that this little guy (2 years old) would be allowed to come and live with his siblings. Also 13-year old Miguel (another Miguel) should be arriving this week. We have to go work on his paperwork with the district attorney tomorrow. This will fill House #3. Keep all of these children in your prayers. Pray also that all the legal paperwork associated with their coming here to live would be taken care of in a quick and effective manner.
Service today continued the theme of prayer. I have been using the Lord's Prayer as a model for the children to learn how to pray, what to pray for, who we pray to, etc. They are memorizing scriptures every week and seem to be responding well to the lessons. Pray with us that the Lord would bring each of them to the point of choosing Him as their Lord and Savior.
Blessings to all,
