Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

Filled with emotions...
Asking for prayers...
We will leave the hotel at 10am, and we are scheduled to meet at 10:30. That's 8:30pm Sunday in Birmingham. Please pray:

January 30: Gotcha Day!!! (Zephaniah 3:17; Psalm 27)
•Pray for Mollie to be at total peace during this scary time
•Pray for the remaining orphans in China and throughout the world, that they may come to know the love of Christ through the love of a family
•Pray for us to have wisdom to know what Mollie needs.
•Pray for Sarah and Abby to be a blessing to Mollie and to show her the love of a family
•Pray that we will be able to nurture Mollie and help Sarah and Abby through this emotional day
•Pray for our first day and night together as a family.

And one additional request: please pray for better relations with our guide tomorrow and the rest of the week. I'm not sure what the issue was today, but Perry and I both felt like we weren't on the same page with her, and it was adding to our anxiety. We will be with her until Friday and she is supposed to be a resource and a calming presence; please pray that we are more patient with her and that she blesses our journey this week.

Zephaniah 3:17
New Living Translation (NLT)

17 For the LORD your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

Zephaniah 3:17 is one of my very favorite verses. Praying for y'all, for reduced anxiety, for Mollie, for Abby and Sarah, for your connection with your guide, for a good night sleep tonight for you all...
