I have good news about Juergen's dad Richard. They ran loads of tests on him, and it is clear he does not need heart surgery! He checked out of the hospital today and was able to go visit Waltrud! That is wonderful! Waltrud is doing well. We need to keep praying for her to recover. When she comes home from the hospital, Richard will be there to care for her! They have been married for 48 years. They are best friends! I am so glad they will continue to be together!

I would like my kids to learn this!



Thank you for your prayers for Juergen's Mom Waltrud and Dad Richard. We can feel your prayers. God has not really given us any answers about the future, but we can feel His control and care. For now, this is all we need!

The way to a mom's heart


I have this funny writing pen that talks like a sarcastic secretary.The pen says something like,"I will get it later boss,after my coffee". Thomas likes the pen,and it has inspired him to start making coffee! We also have a cool new coffee machine, so that has something to do with it! Today he looked at me and said, "Mom, can I make you a cup of coffee"! Oh, I love my Son!!!

Our adoption just got delayed two more weeks. I am pretty down. I am down about Juergens parents and the constant delays in this adoption. I won't park the car here..I'm just feeling sad today. God TV is going to show a live broadcast of one of Bonnkes crusades from Africa February 22-25TH. I am looking forward to watching this amazing event!

Cool Slideshows








I can not sleep. I am thinking about getting our travel approval so that we can go to China to adopt our new daughter Sarah. I am thinking about Juergens parents. I need God's wisdom to even know how to pray for them. I was watching God TV, and looking at resources on line at the same time. I found this cool slide show maker. I think it will be nice to use with our photos from China. Juergen will be traveling to Israel (God willing) in March. I am pretty sure we will go to China in April.I use to be so afraid when he took trips to Israel, now I feel it's a privilege to go there. I wish I could go there again!

Prophetic Words by Wendy Alec
THE WEST COAST OF AMERICA –
I AM PREPARING TO POUR OUT FROM HEAVEN THE FEROCIOUS FIRE OF MY SPIRIT
“Yes” – says the Lord –“ for many have said this is a hard place to break through – it is hard ground – it is not like the bible belt – it is not like the heartland – But in this coming season, I tell you –“ says the Lord – “..that even as the wildfires that blazed across California that could not be contained - that blazed with a ferocious fire – so I am in this day and in this season preparing to pour out from heaven the ferocious fire of my spirit across the West Coast of America.

God just give me the word!


Have you ever been happy when you needed money to pay the rent, and the post man brings a check in the mail just in time? Some of us are happy and the check did not come! We are shouting just because God has given us a word on the inside! It's nonsense..but we just believe. "blessed are those who believe even when we do not see" - TD Jakes

A great site


All Nation Church,the ministries of Mahesh Chavda has video archives of their services and some of their conferences. They have conferences on signs and wonders and prophetic fire. I saw Mahesh and his equally gifted wife Bonnie interviewed on the God Channel. They were full of grace and power. You should check this out! I just heard he was mentored by Derek Prince .
