Memory Monday: the hero edition

With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
Matthew 19:26
________________________________________________________________________

I have a new modern day hero.

Our best friends Josh and Tasha leave today for Uganda to spend six weeks picking up their sweet new daughter, Alethia Grace.

I know firsthand how emotional and exciting an adoption trip is. And that was only going to Africa for one week with just Jeremiah and myself.

However, Tasha is taking along her 3 kids (ages 6, 5, and 2).
And...
(this one is the kicker)
She is 20 weeks preggers.

I know this might seem crazy to some. And I know that doing this at 20 weeks pregnant was not in Tasha's plan...but she is acting in obedience to what she knows the Lord has called and equipped her to do, despite it not being "easy." What a great challenge and example for me to look beyond my comfort level and to respond with obedience when the Lord calls me to something.

Hero material right there!

Please join with me in praying for their family, their travels, the heart of their new daughter as she transitions to a new family, safety and protection for the new little baby growing in Tasha's belly, and that the Lord be glorified throughout it all!

Jennifer,
I lurk around your blog frequently, reading but rarely commenting. I love seeing the pictures of your beautiful family and especially reading about you bringing Eli home. Today I felt impressed to ask you and Jeremiah to pray for our friends, Ryan and Katie Adams, who have been in Uganda for the past two weeks to adopt siblings (Esther 9 and Emanuel 4). They go to court tomorrow and while all of us back home are praying for them, I feel you and Jeremiah know from first-hand experience the specific prayers that they need. They also have 3 children back home (Emily 12, Audrey 6, Cason 2). Thanks for your prayers. Maybe your friends will meet them while they are there!
