I want to thank those of you who are praying for us regarding the Valya situation. All we can do is wait for our SDA appointment. It promises to be an interesting day. It's completely out of our control, so there is no point worrying about it. Deb pointed out in one of her comments that she thought that they would consider splitting sibling groups of 5 or more. Not sure about that, but Oleg says that to split up siblings requires the approval of the siblings plus the local Inspector. Oleg also reassured us that if the siblings or the Inspector wouldn't agree to the split, that we would be able to get a 2nd appointment.
The day of our SDA appointment, Thu. Nov. 27, will be interesting for another reason. It is also the last day for dossier submissions for 2008. If we can get there early, I will take a picture for you and post it on the blog. I will be interested to see one of these legendary facilitator lines myself. I would expect tensions to be high since all of them will be anxious to get their clients submitted.
Our new furniture for the living room arrives tomorrow. It will be good to get that in order. The only furniture we have for Valya's room is mattresses. We've decided to order the rest online when we know when we, or Nancy, will be returning.
That's it for now.
Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
