I've talked with several mom's who are very unsettled because of the rumors. Here's what we know for sure:
- Ministry of Women and Children’s Affairs (MOWA) have made statements that they desire to decrease the number of recommendation letters they write each day. These letters are required in order to sucessfully adopt.
- There will be talks this week in Ethiopian between the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MOWA) and court officials.
Please join us in prayer- We want to blanket the meetings between MOWA and court officials in prayer. We are praying that the meetings and decisions made in Ethiopia will align with God's heart for orphans and adoption.
Here are a few verses I will be holding onto this week-
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight
James 1:27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
Isaiah 1:17 learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
