We did not pass court

We did not pass court today. We are back to our original date of October 8. We got a very short note from our AWAA family coordinator this morning, and I am so thankful for her commitment to our family and to the children. I truly know that she and AWAA did all they could to make this date happen for us. Now we will wait out the "rainy season".

More to come when this all sinks in. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support. It was a real blessing to have so many people encourage us this past week.

Well, that's not what I was hoping to hear. Drat those men praying for patience. The good news is I'm bringing chocolate cake with dairy-free icing to small group tonight. I'm so sorry, you guys.

Susan and Family,
I am terribly saddened by this news. May you find strength in our Lord. "Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:25-26
Praying for you and your family.
In Christ,
Hilary and Jacob Forrest
