A Blog of Prayers

This blog was created to record our thoughts and prayers for the Schmidts as they travel to China to pick up little miss Ava.  Jake learned from a missionary couple in China that emails can be monitored and warned them to be careful with biblical references.  So, to ease worrying on that end, this blog will document our support.

As we did for Darren and Deidre and John and Michelle when they went to get their little darlings, I will send out a sign-up for those wanting to participate to volunteer for a day (or two or more) to pray for Jake, Liz, Luke and Ava.  Check out the itinerary page to follow along and for specifics to refer to.

Simply create a new post to add your thoughts/prayers by clicking "New Post" in the top left corner.

Also, check out Liz's blog (listed on the sidebar) that she hopes to use as communication when they are there.
