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

Cindy sent this out earlier...
just finished packing. We leave tomorrow morning at 7:30 heading toward Evelyn Xiaoyun. Enya Li is incredible! She has such a tender, generous heart. She never eats or drinks without sharing with us first - even if we don't want it ;-)! Her hugs and kisses are freely given, which has been a very pleasant surprise. When we left the adoption affairs office today, we were telling the director goodbye in English and Enya Li turned around and said goodbye - also in English and gave her the I love you sign (which we had been doing on skype the night before with Baba and Em). We were all laughing and shocked!!! She picks up on things quickly and repeats English words back quite a bit. The assistant director of her orphanage was there for the final paperwork today, and so were the orphanage officals here locally, and all were very kind and took tons of pictures. They somehow managed to not only get everything notorized quicker than normal, they also were able to obtain her passport and will have it for us when we leave for the airport in the morning! Our guide, as well as our adoption agency representative in Beijing were shocked. It is normally a long process and they had been hoping we would get it in a couple of weeks. What a praise!!! Enya Li likes to be held all the time, especially when we leave the room. She loves to sing and look at books. She is very neat, and when she takes off clothes she folds them neatly and puts them away.

Be in prayer for the two flights tomorrow that they will go well and that we are refreshed when we see Evelyn Xiaoyun, thank for all the prayers, will write more when able, love to all.
