What George Mueller Can Teach Us About Prayer. A Great Example For The Adoption Process



A great example for us at this time in our lives. Praying as well for our needs as we look to adopt.
"During a time in England when most orphans lived in miserable workhouses or on the streets, like Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist, Mueller took them in, fed them, clothed them, and educated them. Through his orphanage in Bristol, Mueller cared for as many as two thousand orphans at a time—more than ten thousand in his lifetime. Yet he never made the needs of his ministries known to anyone except to God in prayer. Only through his annual reports did people learn after the fact what the needs had been during the previous year and how God had provided.

Mueller had over fifty thousand specific recorded answers to prayers in his journals, thirty thousand of which he said were answered the same day or the same hour that he prayed them. Think of it: that’s five hundred definite answers to prayer each year—more than one per day—every single day for sixty years! God funneled over half a billion dollars (in today’s dollars) through his hands in answer to prayer."

So excited for your adoption journey...it is very difficult at times, but the reward is so very eternal. After four international adoptions, we are no adopting through the ministry. We ARE doing concurrent planning (fostering to adopt). Waiting is the name of the game...and you would think after all these years of adopting, it would get easier....it doesn't. But looking back, we know that God was in it all. His timing was perfect. And he provided everything we needed.

Praying for you. I know this post was done in July...please let me know an update on the gofundme part. I would like to donate but if you are fully funded (praise God)...still praying though.

Blessings,
Connie
