So this is a small update in the large scope of things, but just wanted to share that we received an update that our case would be heard in the Mbuji Mayi court around October 5th. This is exciting as hopefully all goes smoothly and we will be issued a judgement within a couple weeks after the court date. The judgement is the official adoption! We are thrilled that our process seems to be moving forward. We would also cherish prayers as the Congo is a very unstable country and things can certainly go awry very easily. The Congo is not like China, where the government is stable and you have a pretty concrete timeline. Things can change on a whim with a Congo adoption as the DRC has very little government infrastructure. So I have guarded excitement, but I also trust that God is more powerful than all of the issues that could go wrong. What is so awesome is that I was praying fervently today for a quick and smooth process and that we would hear soon about our court date. And I just so happened to receive an email regarding our court date! God rocks and we praise him for his faithfulness on this journey. Whatever happens, it is in his hands, his ways are greater than ours and he is sovereign! The power of prayer is amazing!! So we keep on keepin on and trust in a powerful and amazing God!!
