Prayer Day for Casa 36


Where do I even begin? I sit down with my very few free minutes and just stare at my computer. There is so much to say but I can't put it into words. There are so many things God is teaching me....so many ways He is breaking me. There are moments when I just don't think I can make it another minute, and then the Lord just whispers to me that this is ALL for His glory! What?! Why do I forget so often? I see it in the faces of the Guatemalans. I see it in the volcanoes. I see it in my beautiful little girl's face (which is probably the prettiest face in the world). This is ALL about Him. Today I have felt overwhelmed with HOW HUGE this is.....all that we are up against. It is frightening if I look at the facts. But, I am choosing tonight to trust God with all that I am in ways I never have before.

I am begging y'all to be praying for all of these precious children! Pray for our cases....for angels to escort our cases to the end of PGN.....for health....and for us to not miss a moment to share Christ's love with these amazing people.

I love you all so much....
Lindsey

I am praying for angels to surround your cases. I also rebuke the devil so that you may witness to the people you come in contact with!

For something to lift you up a little today...when you have the chance listen to "Arise & Be Comforted" by Watermark (preferrably the version with Shane & Shane.) ;)
Lindsey & Chris...I know you guys know this song...but since I first read this entry that is the song that has been going through my head!!!

Hi Lindsey and Chris,
Thank you for the prayers for my daughter. We feel the love of so many now, as she is trying to recover. We are ever thankful to our Father for her protection, and her life!
Lindsey, you will remain in our prayers until we see you step off that plane with your girl in your arms and head for home with your family together again!! we can not wait!

this message is from a lady who is in Guatemala and sent it to me, asking me to send it to you - in case you need anything, so here ya go---
Hello.
I am still here in Guatemala and I have been trying to read their blog daily. Please let them know I am praying for them, and so understand the overwhelming feeling Lindsey is going through right now.
If there is anything I can do please let me know.
Thank you!

I'm so proud of you for being able to look outside of "your life" and see satan at work! He would love nothing more than for you to throw your hands up in the air and surrender to him!! We know how dear adoption is to the Lords heart....hold on to His hope, His joy, and His perseverence. Those who follow BOLDLY will be persecuted in this world!! I love you guys! still on our knees.....

Rachel said...

Praying for you, Eliana, and all your sweet friends...

Jerry and Stacie said...

Lindsey, I can't even begin to imagine how hard this must be for you and everybody at Casa 36. You are ALL such brave, strong women to go be there with your children! I know it must not seem like that right now, but YOU ARE and I admire each of you! Please, Please know that we are praying for ALL of you all the time!

We love you!!
Jerry, Stacie, & Allie
