My heart is heavy as I write this out.
I have written on numerous occasions about my friends Josh and Tasha who are currently in Uganda completing the adoption of sweet little Shabila.
After 2 months spent in country they went for their exit interview at the embassy in Kampala, Uganda yesterday...with plans to get on the plane and come home THIS weekend. The supposed last step in the process. However, things did not go as planned...and the embassy has denied Shabila's visa. There are a lot of details involved in this case, of which, I don't feel is necessary (or prudent) to go into.
However, it is necessary and prudent to pray.
I am asking for you to pray.
The effective fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much. - James 5:16
Pray for a miracle.
They need a miracle.
Little Shabila needs a miracle.
We know our God is big.
And that he will sustain them.
Surely God is our help; He is the one who sustains me. - Psalm 54:4
I'll update as we get new information.
