God is SO AWESOME!!!

It's 9 am here on Friday morning.. I slept for about 3 1/2 hours.. :)
Woke up to 69 message in my yahoo account... about 2/3 of those were donations!! We are in awe of YOU and God... and all this!!!!
We have NO idea the total... but, we have to be getting close... the donations keep ROLLING in!!
Some have donated to our paypal.. some through lifesong.. and some just at our local bank.. so we have NO idea what the total is... I'm guessing around $8,000. GOD IS SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!!
We are going to the babyhouse to hear the list of medical issues regarding our girls... and to SCREAM a great big YES when they ask us if we are interested in them!!!!
My insides are bubbling... and I have NO idea how I will be able to contain (in front of all those Kaz. people today) just how awesome our God is!!!! :)
Pray that God opens doors... and we are used for his Glory here... His plans are so not ours.. but, oh so so so much better!!
I have to run... out the door in 20 minutes... :)
Love and prayers and HUGE HUGS from Kazakhstan!!!!
I will figure out a total and update all of you as soon as I can... and no... we don't have pics yet.. hoepfully we will by the end of today!! Just trust us.. they are PRECIOUS and exactly PERFECT for our family!! ;)

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord!!!!!! He is an awesome God! A mighty God that we serve who's plans are so much better than our own. We can't wait to see you and those girls! Robert and I are so excited along with our boys beyound belief. Been in tears most of the day thinking of you, praying for you, and talking about you. Trusting God to open all doors that might still be shut, to knock down all the walls that need to come down and to allow his will to be complete in your lives. Keep the posts coming. We're all waiting and love you dearly!!!!!!

OH MY WORD, I CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR BACK AND KNOW THAT THE LORD SAID "IT IS DONE". LOL I am just looking forward to seeing pictures and knowing a for sure that they are yours. I must say I have been stepping out in faith and believing God will provide all day! I was bummed at first bc I hate being broke young marrieds, and would give my arm to let you have the money. But I stood firm in the faith that God will provide, and he did!!!!!!! Praise Jesus!
