We talked with our contact at Living Hope Adoption Agency today hoping for good news on the progress of our dossier. The news wasn't what we were hoping for. She said that our dossier was still in New York. She told us that the Honduran contact in New York is very thorough in his review of each dossier, so we are hoping the dossier travels back down I-95 by mid-week next week. Living Hope is waiting for some of their paperwork to be finalized that needs to go with our dossier, so we were told that it will probably be at least two weeks before our paperwork goes to Honduras. We are just being reminded that all things will be completed in God's timing. We are just reminded of the passage in James 4
(James 4:13-17) 13 Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." 16 As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. 17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement as you journey with us.
