Going with God

We leave in less than 24 hours. God is with us. We are going with him. We are taking peace, hope, and the understanding that HE is writing this story. We covet your prayers. We humbly ask for you to especially pray on May 24th beginning at 6:10 a.m. CST. This is the exact time we will be standing before the supreme court judge. Pray for him. Pray for our lawyer. Pray for Kirill. But above all else, pray that Christ is seen by everyone who hears Kirill's story. THANK YOU ALL! I will update here as soon as we know the supreme court ruling.

  18. Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for and hope for and expect the Lord! Psalm 31: 24

    God is going to show up, in his mighty stature, with his son at his side, to move hearts. No matter the outcome, you are ever closer as his children and your courage, your unmasking of the truth, has brought each and everyone of us closer to him too. Praise God for you. He has always held Kirill close, and you can be sure that you will see Kirill again, he is your son, this whole story has already been written - allowing you to take peace with you where ever you go.

    Hugs, love, constant prayers.

    8 And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

  38. Fear not (there is nothing to fear) for I am with you; do not look around. In terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes I will hold you up and retain you with My (victorious) right hand of rightness and justice. Is 41:10

  39. Prayers and praises for today's encouraging news, passed along by Aaron's mom in VA. the phrase "be of good courage" keeps resonating in my mind in reference to your family...so I'm passing it along to you. By tomorrow morning, I hope we'll all "be of good cheer" as well!

    Very best wishes from

  46. Praying for your sweet family this morning...Psalm 118:5-7
    Out of my distress I called on the LORD;
    the LORD answered me and set me free.
    The LORD is on my side; I will not fear.
    What can man do to me?
    The LORD is on my side as my helper;
    I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

  48. Hello,
    I am a new reader in Canada and I wanted you to know I have been praying this morning for Kirill and that God enters the court room (or judge's chamber) and that HIS will be done! I pray that you both are feeling strength from so many on your side today but most importantly from our Lord Himself.
    Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
    Blessings, Mary
