Our God is BIG !!!

Gwen Here .. posting on Suzanne's behalf ..

This is all via text, so if I goof anything up Suzanne can fix it ...

They got to the airport this morning and their flight was cancelled to Detroit and told they probaby couldn't leave till tomorrow or Saturday ...Suzanne told me to spread the word, so I got on the phone and started texting everyone to pray ...

Here is the lastest text from Suzanne, "Okay... on plane now... deep breath, all airplane people said "no go" on each airways ... last person told us that all 8 of us could travel plus 16 bags ... NOTHIN short of a miracle .. our GOD is BIG !!! blog it !!! " And just so none of us miss who made this happen there were only 8 seats EXACTLY left on this plane !!!! God thanks for providing a way for this group to get to Katie !!!

Stay Tuned for this Adventure ... God has big things instore for them and for US here at home !!

I have become a follower of Katie's blogs and her cause through CPA. I teach computer there and have your little girl, Annabelle, and I taught Grace last semester. Anyway, I just want you to know that our family is praying for you all, we want to help and get involved however the Lord would call us. I will ask my church, Good Shepherd Presbyterian, to pray for you too. Thank you and bless you for this amazing ministry. (My Blog is for my 8th grade creative writing class, which is why it says Ms. Grapho.)

Haaaa, I love it. We are praying for you guys. We had our own miracle in our own "brick" story yesterday. Due to confusion and clerical errors, both paperwork and a cashier's check for our India adoption was sent to the wrong city AND made out to the wrong government department. There is no way this should have worked. We thought we might be out $900 and set back for a number of weeks with the adoption. We began to thank God and ask people to pray. Later that day we discovered that the paperwork somehow made it to the right city and that the check had been cashed and that we were moving forward. Now we should be next on the list for a referral. God opens doors that no man can shut!
