Update: Please PRAY

Thank you for all your prayers! Well, an update...boy, this is tough. At the moment the U.S. visa consulate is not issuing visas due to discrepancies in our case. The consular is presenting our case to the state department advisory board to be reviewed. They will decide by Tuesday if the whole case will be re investigated or not. If they decide against reinvestigation....we would be at risk of losing Fatu and Osobie, which we cannot even imagine. Only God knows what will happen at that point. If they do decide on reinvestigation, we are hoping and praying this will give AOH a second chance at presenting our case. It would delay us probably a month or so, but at least in the end we would be able to bring home our dear children.
We really-really need your prayers!!
I know we just keep asking for them...and I know you are all praying, This is all we have left. God's mercy. God's hand over and in all of this.
All of you who have walked this LONG journey with us.

With heavy hearts,
Jeff and Katie

My heart is so heavy for you.

Heavenly Father, please move in mighty ways, whisper into the hearts and minds of those in power and cause them to rule in favor of granting visas for Fatu and Osobi. And Lord, lavish your peace on Jeff and Katie. Hold them tightly and let them feel your love and power. Wash over them with your grace and mercy. Give them strength to stand and hope for tomorrow.

We love you, Lord. We lift this up to you and hand it over to you.

In the name of Jesus we pray.
