hint it's the number four

Two big big prayer requests today: A Satanist who would literally throw things at anyone who mentioned Jesus last year started coming to group. Wednesday he asked for a Bible. Pray that God continues to work in his heart. Second prayer is for my family. We've been picked by a birth family to adopt a baby. Asking for prayer for safe travel, c-section birth, baby's health - will be premature and deal with opioid withdrawal. For the birth parents, D and G, that they would feel God's presence in the adoption process. God would prepare us for whatever is ahead including going home without the baby if one of the parents have a change of heart. For our daughter staying with friends and family while we are gone.
