{this is me being real before my Father in heaven as i process my fleshly desires until i ultimately surrender them. may you be set free to engage with Him, to pour out your heavy heart to the One who can do something about it.}


i find myself in this place again where i have believed You and have witnessed You do great and wonderful things, but here i stand looking ahead and my mind begins to wonder if You have what it takes to finish this. i find myself running a list of things by You as if You have no idea.

but God, do You know that our traveling photographer friend’s visa ends in july?

but God, do You know that we won’t know anything new until june 5 and might have to book tickets in a week’s time and how much tickets are to book last minute and how rare it would be to get seats together then?

but God, do You know that a friend I’d like to see in delhi would be out of town june 17-24 and I’ve been waiting over a year to meet her and bring her goodies from the states?

but God, i’ve been praying for favor for years with the passport officials and it appears it will have taken a few weeks from the date of application to the date of appointment before they can even look through all the necessary documents to begin the process?

the words, thank you, fall short when i think about you walking with us on this journey to bring kavita home.

the countless prayers.

the consistent comments.

the texts throughout the day and the night at times.

checking in on us.

sweet gifts.

anonymous letters.

and the journey is far from over.

we now get to display this love we have for her and introduce her to Jesus.

hopefully, she will get to meet you, her prayer warrior, her friend.

but she will never be able to fully grasp all that has taken place the past 3 years.

yet i will try, for the Scriptures record countless times when God tells one generation to tell the other generation about all He has done.

so for you, i give you this gift. a remembering walk through the past 3 years in our journey to bring home kavita.

i was deeply honored to stand where my husband stands each week.

to look into the faces of those who have cried and rejoiced with us week after week after week.

to share her name publicly.

to shed light into our faith journey to bring kavita home.

now, i want to share it with you.

for you are just as real and just as invested! and love her just as much!
