Denied

The visa consulate denied our kids visas!! The new information didn’t change her mind at all. We have no idea what to do or even if there is anything left to do. I am utterly sick, soaked in tears. I am at a complete loss of everything. Our hearts are just broken, an absolute mess. This pain feels unbearable!

I don’t have words…

I just wanted to post because I know there are soo many of you out there that are walking with us in prayer, waiting to hear the outcome.

Thank you for your hearts, your friendship, your prayers.

We are soo in need of God’s comfort right now…so in need of HIM!!!!

Praying for you and wondering, now that you have an official denial, do you have any recourse or appeal process.

Scott and Katy said...

So very sorry. We are absolutely sick for you.
Praying still.
I am reminded of Moses' dealings with Pharaoh and will continue praying.
I am praying for wisdom as you consider your next steps.

Our hearts are so sad for you. We are lifting you both up in prayer.

"Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge." Psalm 62:5-8 (NIV)

In Christ,

Rick and Kate said...

Katie and Jeff, There are no words that can comfort you right now. We can only pray that He will do that for you both. What do we do, where do we go when our hearts are broken in a million pieces except to Him. Our faith is tested, our walk is tested. Everything we have ever believed is tested due to circumstances that we cannot possibly understand. He alone is God and He knows your pain and sorrow. Let Him have His way in this. You do not see it right in this moment, but you will look back and know. Be Still and know that He is GOD. We are lifting you both up in prayer and pleadin for God's comfort and His grace to be sufficient. We love you both so much, but He loves you more. God will take care of those precious babies. He is not done!
Hurting for you both, Kate and Rick

Bryan and Joy said...

Jesus is walking with you in your sorrow. Even when it feels like He isn't, He's there. I'm praying he will provide comfort and strength to you in such real ways that you can't deny it. He is broken for you and for Fatu and Osbie.
