God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

We're Home!!!!!!

Hello from Kentucky! I am so glad to be able to say that. We are thankful the trip went well and we made all our connections. Elli did well on the flights and slept for about 6 hours total. Virgil bore the brunt of keeping her occupied on the flights because she wanted Baba's attention constantly. We had to run to catch the last flight, but we made it in time - thank goodness. From the time we left our hotel until the time we stepped in our door was 28 hours. We are all exhausted and Elli went to bed at 7:00 this evening. It was after 1:30 am before we got to bed this morning. She had to check out EVERYTHING in her room and in the house. What impressed her most were all the pictures of her we had throughout the house. She collected them all and has showed them to us all many times. Virgil amazed Elli with his ability to get ice and water out of the refrigerator door : ) . She played all day today and met Zeb and Dana and visited for a bit with her Uncle Curtis. She takes up with men much quicker than women. We have enjoyed looking at the blog and all the sweet comments people have left. Today was the first time we have seen the blog since we left (it is blocked in China). Thanks to Eddie for the great job keeping it up for us. It will be a wonderful thing to show Elli one day. We want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for coming along on our journey and for all the prayers and encouragement. We'll continue to update in the days ahead. Love you all!!!!
