I Bless the Rains Down in Africa...

They had heavy rain today in Addis Ababa! This is wonderful news and an answer to prayer as their water levels are low. Believe it or not, the low water levels are directly affecting families trying to adopt. Addis is having black outs to conserve energy because their electricity is generated at the hydro-electric plant. So, without enough water, there isn't enough energy, and computers, faxes, telephones, and whatever are not available all day, every day keeping paperwork from getting where it should go.

No news for us today...

Here is a link to a free download of a beautiful song from Sovereign Grace Music. (Click on the album cover to the left.)

I Have a Shelter

I have a shelter in the storm
When troubles pour upon me
Though fears are rising like a flood
My soul can rest securely
O Jesus, I will hide in You
My place of peace and solace
No trial is deeper than Your love
That comforts all my sorrows

I have a shelter in the storm
When all my sins accuse me
Though justice charges me with guilt
Your grace will not refuse me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
Who bore my condemnation
I find my refuge in Your wounds
For there I find salvation

I have a shelter in the storm
When constant winds would break me
For in my weakness, I have learned
Your strength will not forsake me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
The One who bears my burdens
With faithful hands that cannot fail
You’ll bring me home to heaven
