Before I share about our wonderful update and pictures of Henry, I wanted to take a moment to ask for prayer for the Borcherts and the heart-wrenching news from Jeff’s meeting with the consular in Liberia this morning.  My heart is so heavy for them…  I am not sure how Charity Alonso’s meeting with the consular went, but please pray for them as well.  I can’t even imagine how difficult it is to be facing what they are and my heart hurts for them.

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.  May He send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.  May He remember all your sacrifices and accept your offerings.

May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.  WE WILL SHOUT FOR JOY WHEN YOU ARE VICTORIOUS and will lift up the banner of our God.  May the Lord grant all your requests.

Now I know that the Lord saves his annointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.  Some trust in horses and some in chariots, but we trust in the Name of our God.  They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm!  O Lord, answer us when we call!”  Psalm 20
