Fighting on our knees

I have two urgent prayer requests

1. The little boy that I spoke in a few posts down, Ethan's bio brother, is not doing well at all. Unfortuntely, it is proving harder than we thought to get him out of the bush. Our dear friend and faithful partner in the ministry, Erica, is willing to take him in for a short time --she lives in the small town up North that we are preparing to move to. Please pray that there would be no more hindrances in getting Elijah (this is the name we gave him) to Erica.

2. Our newest son, Ephraim, came from a lot of hurt and pain. Part of that involved a very evil man who abused him, as well as other little boys. A few days ago this man was caught. Yesterday, our son had to testify to the local police in order to make sure that this man is put behind bars. Please pray that justice will be served--something that rarely happens in this country. And that our son will be completed washed anew, in his heart and mind.

How thankful I am that we do not fight this battle alone and that our Head Commander is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

Praying for both boys. What a hard thing to have to testify, but I hope justice is served and it will be part of the healing process.
