Even more PRAYER!!!!

Hi friends!

Well,....the saga continues with the Borchert's!
We sure could use some prayers TODAY!!!.

We are waiting to receive our kids visas in order to travel. The visa woman requested our children's parents death certificates and then requested to interview the grandpa. Well, they found grandpa (answer to prayer) and he went in for his interview today. It did not go well. The grandpa was nervous and he was inconsistent with his answers. The visa woman did not issue Fatu and Osobies visas. I am unclear of all the details but basically she does did not believe the grandpa. She is cracking down on the visa process because of child trafficking issues (which is a good thing), and because there have been other orphanages in Liberia that have been deceitful. AOH has never had any problems or grievances. Tomorrow Patty (founder of AOH) and Eric (director of AOH) will have another meeting with the visa consulate to try to resolve our adoption issues and the Alonso's adoption. Our friend, Charity and her family are also in a bind similar to ours. They are waiting to bring home their girls too! You can check out her blog below.
Could you please pray for us &
For the Alonso family!!! (www.internationlmommy.blogspot.com)

-pray for the right words for Patty & Eric
-pray that the visa consulate's heart would be softened
-pray they can solve any problems in paperwork
-pray that the truth is spoken and that there is understanding of Liberian culture
Could you also pray for Jeff and I... we're a bit distraught over all of this, as you can imagine. We are also learning how to trust our Father at a whole new level!

We love you all! Thank you for seeking God with us. It feels so much better to know we are a part of a God seeking, Jesus loving, prayer warrior community!!
