Spirit of Adoption Alberta

carityheadshot04

Tonight, Susan and I will be heading to Calgary to speak at Centre Street Church tomorrow morning at an adoption information session. These seem to be the majority of events that we are being invited to speak at and this is good because our first goal is to provide financial aid to families who really need it.

This doesn't help us raise funds though. Finances are trickling in slowly and people are starting to "catch" our vision. We understand that this will take time. We are starting to receive applications and this is very exciting! We know that God will provide. You can check out Susan's latest blog post on the Spirit of Adoption Alberta website.

On Sunday, we will be speaking at McKernan Baptist Church here in Edmonton and this will be more of a seeking financial donation talk.

I have to say that this is a crazy weekend for me to be gone. The kids have a thousand activities. Thankfully, we have a teenage driver who is willing to help her Dad out.

We are asking for prayer in all these areas. I felt like I was under a bit of a spiritual attack after our last session. The kids went crazy on me the next week and I was having nightmares, which I never have! I feel at peace going into this weekend, but would still appreciate prayer.

Praying that all the people that come to both events will catch the vision and do what they can. Praying both you and Susan will feel God's peace, that everything will work out better than planned.
Also praying that you and your family will be protected from the evil one's attacks.

Praying for you as well, my friend. I'm glad you could recognize the spiritual attack... it will help you be more prepared and recognize it next time if it happens - but praying it doesn't!

Praying for peace on the road and at home. Praying for hearts to be stirred for adoption and for hearts of generosity to come forward.

Praying for you. Your "care for the fatherless" is truly inspirational. Wish you lived closer so we could go out for coffee and have a good long chat :)
