Sad news...

We did not pass court today like we had hoped for. The rainy season court closure has begun....so our next expected appearance in court is sometime in October. We are so sad and asking for God's power and peace to guide us these next few months of more waiting....

When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Michael and I are extremely sorry to hear this. Of course you're sad--you should be. Joy comes in the morning, but it isn't quite light yet, is it? We are praying for all of you.

So not what I wanted to read. We are crying tears of sadness for the Fournet family but rejoice in His comforting words and power. May He sustain your every need right now.

Love from all of us. Continuing to pray for you.

Fournet's...
Jesus loves each of you so very deeply and has ordained, before the beginning of time, when you are to be united with your sweet children... we mourn with you tonight AND pray for these next months to be filled with many unforeseen blessings... and of course to go by quickly.
I'm so sorry...

Natalie,
My heart truly breaks for you as I know you ache to hold your precious babies! We will continue bathe you in prayer! It is just beyond beautiful when we pray back the words of the Lord to HIM. May you be granted His strength and peace during this wait and may it feel as just a speck in time that passes before you are united together! You have such a gracious and faithful heart that so many gain strength from!

N&B, I'm so sad with you guys! I am asking our heavenly Father to give you a supernatural joy and peace that comes from continuing to trust him, as I know you are, and entrusting the babies ultimate care into his hands.
