A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
Today, we board our plane to start our lives in the Ukraine.
We pray for comfort for the hearts we are leaving behind and hopeful assurance for the hearts who will receive us at the end of our travels.
We pray for peace to cover our own hearts and protection for our travels, expectant for the complete joy found in sharing His love with the precious children who await us.
Thank you for joining us in praying as we counted down to our departure to the Ukraine. You can read more about the 21 Days of Prayer here. We were so blessed to have your prayers as we prepared to go and will continue to treasure your prayers as we travel, arrive and settle abroad.
