Bringing Mercy Home

Many of you are aware of the fact that Tony's sister and brother-in-law are in the process of adopting Mercy from Ethiopia.  She is the younger sister of their son, Derara (whom they adopted a year and a half ago).  They just learned today that they have received a court date for July 17th!  
Please be in prayer for Ryan and Lisa for the following...
- that all the final paperwork will be completed without delay or complication before then
- that their request for adoption will be approved by the court on that day
- that travel arrangements for 6 weeks later will go through with ease
- that the expenses would be taken care of (may the LORD provide for their every need)
- that their visa, upon travel in late August/early September, would go through smoothly upon initial submission so they will not have to be away from home too long
- that God's hand of protection, peace and provision be upon Mercy as she waits for her new home... may her transition go wonderfully well

Thank you for your prayers.  To learn more about their process, visit Lisa's blog at: www.bringingmercyhome.blogspot.com
