I have asked my friend, Vince Giordano from HopeChest to write this week's iFast58 email. He got to see God answer a sweet prayer today and I wanted him to share it since YOU guys were involved!!!
"Today we received awesome news. We received news that confirms that He places the lonely in families. As much as we care about the least of these, He cares even more. Dima is adoptable!! What an answer to prayer that all started with an iFast request. Just a few Wednesdays ago we prayed for sweet little Dima - a special needs child in Elatma orphanage in Russia. I was also praying simultaneously for God to make him available to become a part of our family. The first and biggest hurdle has been cleared! I am grateful to all of you who prayed for Dima and I am thankful to God for answering those prayers. He is such a sweet and loving God. In all of His power and majesty He lovingly cares for the helpless and hopeless. AND He chooses to use us in the process - how fantastic is that?
As my dear friend Brandi has taught me, God cares deeply about our hearts...He is committed to changing, molding and healing them in the gentle way only He can do. Whatever you are trusting Him for today, I encourage you to do it with your WHOLE heart. He is good and gracious and tender-loving God...no good thing will He withold from them that walk uprightly. I am overwhelmed by the love of our God tonight and I pray you would feel His love today and that you would make a choice to make that love known to someone in a tangible way. Blessings, Vince Giordano
Does that thrill your heart? It does mine! And it makes me excited for all the other miracles we can pray for this week!!!
Orphan Relief and Rescue - Liberia
Praise point first: the Lord provided a new generator for the team house; thank you to all who prayed for that necessary item. We're one step closer to getting back up to full speed!
Please continue to pray for the weekend of Nov. 6 & 7: there is our annual board meeting, a dinner and swing dance in Seattle, and a dinner/auction in Atlanta. All together, we hope that this weekend will establish a strong foundation for the year. Please pray with us that we will be equipped and encouraged for the year ahead!
