Refreshed and Rejuvenated

It's how I feel. :)

It's amazing what a couple of days with people that 'get' it, will do for you. :)

The best part is that having D there has helped tremendously. He's 100 % onboard with my work with Project HOPEFUL and has become part of the team...not just sitting on the sideline asking why I have taken on another mission.

LOVE IT!

Carolyn's husband and D got along so well...there may be some fun, Man vs Orphan Crisis, happening with those guys. Be on the look out. :)

I have taken on some more opportunities... GOOD ones! :) I sometimes wonder about my sanity, but I am loving this new venture...and can see how God has been setting things in motion, moving things into the right places so that I can help Him in this way.

I was telling my friend today that I am so stinkin in AWE of His gift of allowing me to help in this way. He set these ideas in my head, He let them grow and form...then He led me to someone that is doing THOSE things. He's making it happen. The coolest part is that I don't have to be the one in charge, or be the idea person, or make all the decisions... I get to be part of the greater picture. A bigger team, that I didn't have to form. How daggon awesome is that?!

He knows I have to 'work' right now, since we need health insurance...so I can do that and this.

Oh, and by the way... we gonna have some more kiddos... :)

How's that for adding to the mix?!

If you are my friend on FB please don't talk about it there...there are people that I know don't read this ...that do read that. :) But we are getting ready to start again...sooner rather than later. D was like struck in the head with a 2x4 when Eileen spoke on Friday night...then the pastor after her was phenomenal... afterwards he told me that God gave him his burning bush, talking donkey and a 2x4 all at the same time.

I told him that he will have to hold on to his hat because I know there are 2 kiddos out there for us...:)

So, guys...are you ready? We have some great adventures ahead... mission work, mission team work, 2 mission teams... some other big stuff I can't tell you about yet so hold on to your hats... and kiddos on the way.

I am ready...BRING IT!

This is wonderful news!!!!!! Boy those Orphans Summits can sure change everything, can't they?

2 more kiddos for your family??? At the same time? I can give you some advice on that one if you would like it. :) I love that my 2 littlest boys are biological sibs!

When God moves in a life like He has recently done in the life of your family, can I advise you to read and pray Ephesians 6 daily? The enemy is sure not to like the life-giving plan that God has laid on your hearts.

"Greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world!"

Let us know how we can pray. I am SOOOO excited for you!

Love,
Laura
