Greetings from Irving, Texas! We are attending Summit V, the national adoption conference. Last year, at Summit IV, we made the decision to go ahead and pursue adoption. It’s wonderful to be around so many individuals and ministries that are committed to reaching out to meet the needs of the fatherless. Speaking of our adoption, we received wonderful news this past week from USCIS (Customs & Immigration Services). They have approved our application and forwarded it on to the American Consulate in Ethiopia for processing!  We are one step closer to bringing Favor home – keep praying!
 
Tomorrow, I leave for a 10 day trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe. Our YWAM MercyWorks team has been faithfully praying for Zimbabwe for many months now, and I will be leading a small communications and advance assessment team to South Africa for the purpose of seeing how we can practically meet the needs of Zimbabwe refugees in settlement camps in South Africa. We are hopeful it will be possible to do a quick run into Zimbabwe to assess the situation there as well. It’s been over 10 years now since our family lived in South Africa and I’m eager to return to this nation. While there, I plan to speak with South Africa national director Stefaan Hugo about the 2010 World Cup outreach as well.
 
IN CLOSING …
 
On Sunday, May 10 (Mother’s Day), at church we will give a Hope For 100 update, sharing how many families are in the adoption process since our campaign launch in January.  On the church platform will be this three-dimensional Hope For 100 display.  It shows a house being built, with each of 100 bricks representing one orphan who is receiving a loving, Christian home. Truly, motherhood is one of the greatest callings in life. As Abraham Lincoln once said, “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”   
AT A GLANCE ...
 
Last month while Carol held down the home fort with Bruno and Richie, I visited one of our sponsoring churches in southern California.  I had a blessed time catching up in person with many of our friends and supporters.  It was also fun to attend the Palm Desert “tea party” on April 15.


 
On Easter Sunday, I visited three different churches, and enjoyed a Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman concert in the evening.  
My 3000+ mile round-trip drive was quite pleasant thanks to my Kindle 2 (electronic book reader) and its “text-to-speech” feature.
 
On May 7, Fabio (our exchange student from Germany of last year) is visiting us for two weeks.

We are so eager to see him again! Thank you for your prayers and support.  
We need you in our lives!
