There is singing in heaven.....

.....for another precious lost soul has become a child of the King of Kings.

This girl, who 9 short months ago didn't know ANYTHING about God and His infinite love for her:

was literally BEGGING her Daddy and me to show her how to become a Christian.

The Holy Spirit was so clearly evident in her heart, as the tears flowed and she became a daughter for the SECOND time in one year.

Oh, Lord, the joy is so big it almost hurts.

HE took a lost, lonely, abandoned little girl who needed Him desparately.....

and matched her with two parents who would so gladly show her His love.

Missions. In the rawest sense of the word.

"Going". We went!

 "Teaching". We're teaching!

And "making disciples". She's a disciple now!

Praise the Lord for His grace! That He would love us enough to send His son Jesus to take our place on the cross is difficult to comprehend, and even harder to explain to a girl who never knew unconditional love.

Until now.

Johanna sweetly said, "Now I have TWO adopted Daddies who love me!"

Heaven seems a little sweeter now. :)
