Dossier all but complete

We are so excited to announce that we have done our fingerprinting and that our dossier has been reviewed and accepted.  We are just waiting for our USCIS approval which should come any day and then we will send our payment.  We are overwhelmed by the Lord goodness in providing this payment.  It has been one of our harder ones to get together and the Lord has sought fit to urge His people to give and we are so thankful.  We have the necessary amount and now our dossier will go to authentication and then on to Ethiopia. We were concerned that it would not get there before our paperwork expired, but it looks like it will.  Thank the Lord.  We still have much money to raise for our referral, but we should have about a year to get that together

On another note, please pray for my younger sister.  She has been diagnosed with rectal Cancer and is having surgery Thursday.  Please pray that the Dr will get all the cancer and it won't be as bad as they think and that surgery is the only treatment that will be required.  She is a believer and has a peace and comfort found only this those that love Christ with all their hearts.  Please pray for us during this difficult time.  I will leave you with this quote by CS Lewis

"God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in ours conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world."
