We're coming Josie Love! Mama is trying to get her bags packed!

I cannot BELIEVE it! The past few days have seemed SO surreal! Grace and Annabelle have had the swine flu, SO all of my planning and packing has taken a backseat. WOW! I have 2 days to get myself and all of Josie Love's stuff packed! NOW, I have been shopping for awhile, so Josie is is Mama who might not have any clothes. I am beginning clothes are a little overrated these days anyway. We come into the world without them....?!?
Gwen and I have been working tirelessly on trying to get our ducks in a row with OUR SITE SHOULD BE UP AND RUNNING WEDNESDAY...YIPPEE! We just got some AWESOME shirts is BY FAR the softest shirt in my closet. Go check out our new stuff and feed a child in Uganda. While I am there, I will be videoing the Karamajong village so ya'll can get a close up view on who we are feeding with our products. Also, the Mama's in the Karamajong tribe are the ones making our beads, so I am hoping to get them on video also. If you follow Katie's blog, I'm gonna sneak a pic of little Michael also! ssshhhh!
So, I kept spinning my wheels and couldn't get ANYTHING done, solast night we headed to the cabin for a family get away before we are a few pics....
I'll post again on Wednesday night......pray, pray, pray for my family!

Praying for you and your sweet family my friend. Josie Love is one blessed little girl to soon becoming a Mayernick! Little Michael has been on my heart lately...can't wait to see his picture. Glad you got to enjoy some time at the lake. Give Katie a big hug for us. May your time in Uganda be full of joy seeing God's hand at work.

How exciting!! I can't wait to see and hear what happens. We are in the planning stages of adopting and Amani is one of our possibilities, so we are watching how your process goes and praying about what God has for us. So thrilled for you! After following Katie's blog for so long, I only wish I could be there, as well, to pitch in and help! Praying for you all!!

Mike and Suzanne,
Hope this note finds you all enjoying the blessings of the day amidst your burdensome concerns. One of the blessings of the day for me has been seeing the most recent pictures of Josie. She looks 100% better and ready to come to her new home. God willing this will be sooner than later.
I have never been as proud of you two in recent days. Your testimony to your faith and commitment to doing the will of the Father have been observed and marveled at by many home and abroad.
Our Sunday school lessons the past two weeks have been entitled "God Is Just" and "God is faithful"- two concepts not easily understood especially in times of difficulty. As such, I was compelled to use your testimonies to God's faithfulness as a teachable moment in my Suncay School. After reading portions of your testimonies and summarizing "The Journey", There was not a dry eye in the room. Thanks be to God.
The outpouring of support here by your
friends has been unbelievable The house is still standing and the children are fine.
Our prayers remain with Josie for continued healing and permanent inclusion in our family.
