What A Weekend!

This weekend, I and seven other women from our church traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for the Deeper Still Women's Conference featuring Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, and Priscilla Shirer. It was absolutely amazing, to say the least! God blessed my heart in so many ways...He knew exactly what I needed to hear! I can't say enough about the gift that God has given these ladies to communicate the word of God. I was convicted to treasure the word of God above everything else in my life. I want to love his Word more and more, and share the truth of it with others.

Also, the most recent post on the AWAA blog says this:

June 27, 2008
Ethiopia Program
10 referrals of children ranging from 0-10 were made in the month of June.
The family who recently received an infant girl referral had a DTE (Dossier to Ethiopia) of October 15 2007.The family who recently received an infant boy referral had a DTE (Dossier to Ethiopia) of November 21 2007.
Based on the new referrals the wait time for an infant girl and infant boy as well as toddlers is currently 7-9 months.
32 children have come home with their adoptive families in 2008. America World families have received 35 referrals since January of this year. 7 of these children were from the Waiting Children list.

That's right! AWAA reached their goal of giving ten referrals per month! Praise God! That is a huge milestone for our agency, and one that we pray will continue.

It sounds like an awesome conference! I saw Priscilla Shirer last year, right after went sent in our dossier. She really spoke to me.

I came across your blog on RLC. I have two beautiful nieces who are adopted, one from Ethiopia and one from Guatamala. We are currently waiting for a referral for a little girl from India. May God bless you through your journey to finding your son!
