Another call from our sweet social worker to tell us that the MAPP class has an official start date of October 14th. It's every Thursday night from 6-9pm for 10 weeks and one Saturday in the mix that is 6 hours long. We should be finished on December 9th. In it we will be learning a lot of skills to deal with the children and Im sure many legal things as well (I can't wait to share with everyone what we learn). We are so excited we can't stand it. Its just one step closer to God's precious children.
On another note, I've made all comments on this blog private until I can read them. I had a crazy on facebook say some pretty nasty things to me. And I suspect there are more who don't like what we are doing and will most likely make that known so I'm going to head those attacks of Satan off before they can even get started!
I also wanted to make one thing very clear: This blog is in no way intended to make anyone feel bad about what they are or aren't doing for God's kingdom. That is between you and God. But I do hope that this blog will help people get an inside view on what it takes to become a foster parent and/or what it looks like to take a leap of faith in any area of your life. Maybe you are dealing with a big life changing decision and you know all you have to hold onto is God - I pray that this blog will help you take that leap of faith to fully trust in the savior of the world. Because in the end it's not works that get you into heaven it's your faith in God and your trust in him and him alone. I pray that God will move like he never has in Lakeland, Florida and I pray that he starts with me and my family.
