Calling All Prayer Warriors

Ok, so here's the situation.

Remember in all this we want GOD'S WILL above ALL ELSE. 

We were planning to travel to Eastern Europe for an appointment around the 15th of April.  We just received notice that it MAY be placed around the 22nd of April instead.

Why does this matter?

We would have to postpone until the end of May if we receive the later date.  We have lost one son.  We do not want to delay to get to another at the same institution.

Reasons for postponing?
*There are many holidays in this particular country in the beginning of May, which would mean we had to have an extended trip.  My husband cannot do that and has only a certain amount of vacation time.
*We would need to postpone until the Eastern European May holidays are completely over and our oldest son has graduated.

We know we're not 100% funded.  We know the following request may not make sense to some, but could you please pray and petition that we receive the earlier date (only IF it's God's Will and to bring HIM glory)?

Could you please pray we are given an appointment of April 15th-17th?  Thank you friends....


All prayer requests are listed below.

If you wish to help us in our journey financially please see the information following.

This video shows our reality and below the video (on YouTube) there are ways to give listed. 

We have $3110 needed to bring Ben home.  Yes, we have a week (if we travel for an early date) to do it...but God's got this.

Prayer Requests:

*NEW~ Please pray for God's perfect timing and IF it's HIS will, we will get a date of April 15th to 17th.  ALSO, that we get court quickly and avoid the May holidays in country.

*Please pray that God sustains Benjamin.  Please pray that He prepares his heart and Ben dreams of us...knowing ways that wouldn't make sense to the world.  Please pray he attaches and learns to love quicker than we can fathom.

*Please pray for comfort as we continue to mourn Jonathan.
*Please pray for the funds to be placed in front of us quickly. 

*PLEASE pray that satan's hands are tied.  He does not want us (or anyone) to enter that village. 

*Please pray that the village gates are “figuratively” thrown down and God’s love floods the streets.

Travel Prayer Requests

*Please pray for us to have a connection with the head of the institution.  Our feelings are raw, but we know that they have limited resources and we pray we can make a difference in the lives of these boys.

*Please pray our children here in the U.S. are protected and safe.  Please pray a wall (cement, barbed wire, of protection around them especially while we are apart.  Please pray for my brother and mom as they care for the kids.

*Please pray the trip is smooth.  There are NO issues.  That every blip, every ironed out before us.

*Please pray BOTH trips are quicker than we fathom...a quickness only God can give.



  1. I will be praying. Try to remember that God's timing will be best, whenever it happens to be.
    God bless!!!

  2. For you. With you. In Him. May the walls between Ben and home come tumbling down Lord. An earlier travel for Mom & Dad and favor in all details, please Jesus.


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
