And they're off... again

I had our documents notarized and FedExed to be apostilled this morning. We would SO greatly appreciate prayers that
1) these documents would make it safely to the authenticating dept.
2) that everything has been correctly notarized and filled out so they can be apostilled
2) That they will then safely make it to our translator in Kiev.
3) That everything will be in order and acceptable to the SDA.

This mama is a paperwork master for sure, but I really don't want to do anything else again!

We're getting so close which is both exciting and nerve wracking as we are still waiting to get the "OK" from our translator that all of our documents are ready for submittal.

We've been studying parables in Matthew in our Sunday School class. This was not the one we were studying but as I was browsing around, I found the parable about the Fig Tree. Funny how I never really paid attention before to what it says.

Matthew 21
18 Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry.
19 And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”
21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.

22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

So don't be shy! Pray for us :)

Hooray! Praying they are just as Ukraine asks them to be.
When we had to fix something, I literally started crying when I read the words "notarized and apostilled" again. I thought I was done with that office.
Hopefully neither of us will have to go there again!

Ah I SO know what you mean! I am just DONE with this part and ready for the next!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
