“As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should!” Psalm 119:7 NLT

The Lord is my strength and my song;he has given me victory.This is my God, and I will praise him—my father’s God, and I will exalt him!

My family, but our Joy is missing

When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.” John 15:10 NLT

 在 神 我 们 的 父 面 前 , 那 清 洁 没 有 玷 污 的 虔 诚 , 就 是 看 顾 在 患 难 中 的 孤 儿 寡 妇 , 并 且 保 守 自 己 不 沾 染 世 俗

 فَالدِّيَانَةُ الطَّاهِرَةُ النَّقِيَّةُ فِي نَظَرِ اللهِ الآبِ، تَظْهَرُ فِي زِيَارَةِ الأَيْتَامِ وَالأَرَامِلِ لإِعَانَتِهِمْ فِي ضِيقِهِمْ، وَفِي صِيَانَةِ النَّفْسِ مِنَ التَّلَوُّثِ بِفَسَادِ الْعَالَمِ.

Hoping and praying that our journey to Ghana will progress.  God's timing is always perfect and we must be patient. The good news is that Joy is being taken care of and is the object of affection of many caring Sisters.  We are praying for a smooth transition into family life for her.  Moving one from one's homeland is a total system shock, everything is different.  All the smells, sights, and sounds are unfamiliar as is the food.  Elijah longed for; his foster mothers special drink that she used to make for him.  I am sure that Joy will shed many tears, but hopefully all of her memories and fun experiences to come will comfort her.  To know that we will always be there for her never to forsake her.

James 1:27

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you
