San Salvador: January 23rd, 2009
I thank our Lord that we were able to finish another week. I hope this letter finds you well and blessed. Things here are moving like always in slow motion; but we are about to see big changes – we all are going to be witnesses to these changes and that is why I am thankful to the Lord.
Today, I asked a friend of mine, Kevin Donoho, who is visiting El Salvador and who is also one of our families, to share in this letter, about his experience and whatâ€™s going on here.
Here there are some words from Kevin Donoho:
“This has been a good day here in San Salvador. I had the opportunity to meet with many of the people who are involved in the adoption process. God opened the door for me today, with the help of Carmen (a friend of AWAA) to have the privilege of meeting with the Procurador of the country. I know many of you may not be aware of his role in the process, but he is very influential in seeing the process move forward. I was very encouraged to represent all of us who wait for the day we will bring our children home. I have seen firsthand the complexities of adoption in this country. I know it is easy to get discouraged and to lose heart in this process but I want to encourage you to not lose hope. I speak for Rachel and I that we are committed. I have faith there will come a day when I will return not to visit, but to bring our child home. I see the complexities, the struggles, the frustration, but more than anything I see hope. Let us continue to pray for Brian, AWAA, Alexis, our friend Carmen and all those that the Lord is using to move mountains. We have a great group of people that are committed to the Lord and to seeing the children of El Salvador find forever homes.
Psalm 37: 4-5 Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heartÂ´s desires. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.”
