Article 5---Finally

Yes folks we finally got an email from our agency letting us know our Article 5 has been signed. We actually received the email from them on Thursday, May the 27th but I have been so busy that I haven't been able to update you all. As always, thank you for the prayers. The next step is the TA (Travel Approval). All of our papers are now being sent up to Beijing to the CCAA for them to look over and then give us the approval to travel to China to get Noah Pinghe. This process can take 2 to 4 weeks. This is our next prayer request to all of you. We are really praying that this step goes quicker than normal. It would be such a blessing to travel as soon as possible. We know the Lord is in control and He knows what is best but we also know that He wants to hear our thoughts and desires. So, with that said I will keep on praying.
As far as home is concerned we finished up the school year as of Friday and we are greatful for the break. The girls finished the school year very well and we are proud of them. We are not quite sure what the next school year holds for all of us but we will do whatever the Lord leads us to do.
Thanks again for all the prayers. God is good all the time and He will never leave us or forsake us. I am very thankful for that assurance. It gives me a peace that passes all understanding.

Congratulations on Article 5! Not too much longer and you will be on your way!

I hope we get a chance to meet before you travel. If not we look forward to meeting your whole family soon. I can't wait to follow your journey and see what God has in store for you.
