As I read Oswalds devotion for today I am encouraged to tell God to speak to me. He says, "Get into the habit of saying Speak Lord. Everytime circumstances press in on you say, Speak Lord and then make time to listen." We got a call from our agency about some kids they have back in Bogota and they will hopefully be getting some more info in the next week and would we be interestead. We said we would be but would like some more info. Meanwhile they are still trying to find out what is going on in the region where our paperwork has been for the last 4 months. We have so many emotions going on right now. We have been feeling that our kids are there in the region of Boyaca but we know nothing, and then this situation comes up and we are not sure what to do yet. We are desperate to know what God wants us to do and that He brings the right children for us into our family. We have so many thoughts about what WE want the kids to be, but want to know what GOD has for us and that we are open to His plans. We are praying that we hear something soon as we would love to be back from Colombia before May b/c Jim gets extremely busy in the months of May, June and July and would not be able to stay the whole month needed. (He works for a fireworks company). So I am asking and begging God to speak to us and let us know what we are to do. Thank you for your prayers and I have missed praying with my CHI girls on monday nights but for the last 3 weeks I haven't been able to get on for some reason. Anyways, I will continue to keep you updated when we have more news!

Today has just been a great day! God is so good. We went to a travel class on Saturday from our agency and it renewed our excitement. We can't wait to hear about our kids. Apparently the region of Boyaca likes us and has continued to hold on to our paperwork for over 3 months now. They have 3 kids, in the age range we requested, and are still waiting on the abandonment decree. Hopefully now that the courts are open again things will move fast! God has just filled us with such hope and joy that we will hear something soon! Oh, how I pray that we would! :)
