Dear Harmony Family, Please pray! We have three Harmony kids and their families who are in need of your intercessory prayers:
1. Little Gianna (FKA Lily) is showing signs of heart failure. This little dolly is about the sweetest little girl God ever created—and has already gone through extensive heart surgery here in the U.S. But she seems to be in trouble again and is currently being stabilized in preparation for transport to Boston Children’s Hospital for a fourth emergency heart surgery in early December. [divider] 2. Kristin—adopted from Harmony earlier this year—has heart issues very similar to Gianna’s. Amazingly, December 3 she is scheduled for heart surgery at the same hospital and by the same surgeons! Through the Harmony Outreach adoptive family network both families have become dear friends and are encouraging and upholding each other. [divider] 3. A 7-year-old deaf boy adopted from us two years ago—now called Toby—needs prayer. Toby is a sweet boy but for reasons most-likely related to early childhood trauma he is exhibiting significant behavioral issues. Toby’s dad is a pastor, they are adopting a second child right now, and all of this together means we really need to be lifting up both Toby and his parents—prayers that God will calm the storm in him and for his family and that God will give them every extra measure of grace, strength and wisdom they need until he comes through this period.
James 5:16 tells us, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” May we all pray with those words of faith in our hearts so that we will soon be seeing the “wonderful results!” When you adopt from Harmony you are never alone! We are in it with you and want to lift up our voices to the King anytime you need prayer for your child or family. [divider] And while we have your attention we also want to advise you that we have locked in the dates for our next mission trip to Cambodia! You are invited to join us March 3-13, 2016, for an adventure that we believe will be a mountaintop experience in your walk with the Lord. Airfares are crazy cheap right now—but these prices won’t last! Please contact Linda-Mac (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a brochure and more information. We have arranged this trip to take advantage of two weekends to minimize your lost workdays. [divider] And finally, as everyone is shopping like crazy this holiday season, please remember when shopping on Amazon to use www.smile.Amazon and choose Harmony Outreach as your charity. Thereafter, every purchase you make using AmazonSmile will result in Amazon donating .05% to Harmony. That’s a small percentage, but when we all get in the habit of using it, it adds up! [divider] We love you Harmony Family, and from all of us in Temecula, Langfang, Addis Ababa, and Phnom Penh, we wish your family a Happy Thanksgiving! And thank You, Jesus, for being our redeemer, provider, deliverer, and friend.
