Today we celebrated our Easter with attending the very first service of The Graceworks. Its a sister church to Emmanuel Baptist church here in Olympia and we happen to meet the pastor and co pastor at our neighbors little girls birthday party a few weeks ago. They were so excited to begin and the love they have to reach people for Christ was so refreshing to us. Today they launched on Easter Sunday and Frank and I and the family decided to go applaud them on their first day.
Walking into a church family that we had not meet anyone yet except the pastor and co-pastor and their family, we were surprised to have people come up to us and read the name tags and say ''Oh Teabos, we have been praying for your kids to come home!'' I was so humbled by those words. I don't even know them. While the pastor was sharing the message about what church means. I was overcome by a love for His church body. How awesome it is that we don't have to attend the same church that we can be praying for each other and not even live in the same state. I got another sweet email from a very nice lady at my friends church in Lakewood that has been praying for us for such a long time. A while back a family from Tennessee had mentioned our names to the prayer chain of their church and a women who heard sent us a check for our adoption, she had never even seen our faces.
When the body moves in prayers things happens I just know it! There are tons of people I have prayed for and have never meet, I am sure you also. I am sure it is an aroma to Christ the body in unity praying for someone for something, people from all over the world. Right now there are people praying for our children in Ghana, in South Africa, In China, In Uganda, In Senegal, In Turkey, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Michigan, Chicago, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Montana, Minnesota, Hawaii *MORE STATES, I cant think of now ;) In Tumwater, Olympia, Lacey, Seattle, Lakewood.
Something is bound to happen right. Saints help us pray it up. We want and need some good news soon!
From the bottom I mean with all the gratefulness in my soul, Thank you for your sweet aroma of prayers before the Heavenlies for our babies to come to us!
An inexpensive gift idea and a fun recipe!
