The Pursuit of Jonah

Over the past few years, I have learned that everything is bigger in Texas through my sweet friend, Darla. Her smile, her laugh, her kindness and compassion, her spirit and her heart are about the biggest they come. Her friendship has blessed me beyond measure. It is truly that of divine appointment.

I could sing her praises all day long, but I need to get to the point.

Darla's son and daughter-in-law have been beautiful examples of being obedient in the Lord's plans for their lives. They were called to adopt a child, and God has shown His favor! They have met their son Jonah in Russia and are completely in love with him.

Their story is beautiful, but it's not mine to tell. You can read all about it at

The purpose of this post is for a prayer request. Due to past abuse of adopted Russian babies, they have instated a 30 day waiting period before you can bring your baby home. They met him a couple months ago and have been just waiting for a court date. Could you imagine having to leave your baby in another country for 30 days??

Well they are in Russia right now. At midnight, our time, they will stand before a judge and beg him to waive the waiting period so they can bring their baby home.

Will you please pray for them? We serve a mighty God that can easily soften this judge's heart. However, His will is perfect so even if the request is denied, our God is still mighty!!
