I know I'm constantly testifying about God's provisions for our adoption. I hope you guys aren't too sick of it but I just can't help myself. This is the part that is totally blowing our minds right now. I'm not sure why it is so amazing to us since we know that God is more than capable of providing for our every need... but it still has us in tears as we watch daily as HE fulfills His promises to us.
Our family has spent a lot of this year reflecting on the early church and their love for Jesus and for others. We have prayed and strived to re-arrange our priorities so that we could "do life" more like they did. We were captivated by the truth that they sold their personal belongings and gave to whoever was in need. I think when a believer in the early church had a need, the body went to work to make it happen. Many of us are challenged by a lifestyle that looks like that because we have fallen victim to the desire of obtaining the American dream. However, over the past 5 months I have been inspired by many people who have been willing to step out in faith and give of their resources and time in order to help us bring our baby home. Let me introduce you to one of those families.
Our very dear friends, The Frye Family!!!!
Here are the "orphan loving" Frye boys sporting their team colors.... their on Esther's team!
We know that our Father is the one providing for Esther's homecoming, but He is using families just like the Fryes to make it happen. They are just one of many who are being obedient to the command of caring for orphans by helping us provide this child with a home and a family. We give these families thanks, but we give God ALL the Glory! Not to us, but to YOUR name, Father, be all the Glory!
'till there's "no more"!
