Our dear friends the Arnolds returned from China with their precious Libi Faith a couple of years ago. God has done AMAZING things in this little girl's life. She is now walking, starting to talk, and potty-training. Libi could barely hold her head up when they brought her home. God has moved mountains with this little girl. And let me tell you, this family is head-over-heels in love with their Libi. The Arnolds are asking God to move a mountain again. This time, we have been asked to pray for Libi's big sister (who is so adorable I can hardly stand it btw). Haddie Hope is still in China. Their second little princess is being held back by some paperwork issues and we need her home ASAP. She needs to be united with her new family now not later. Would you pray along with me for this sweet little girl? Thank you sweet friends!
The following is what Amy wrote on their blog:
I am asking anyone and everyone who will go before the Father to do so on behalf of the Arnold family for our sweet Haddie Hope Jie. It is becoming more clear to me that she is being batteled over. I KNOW that we do not battle against flesh and blood! We fight a very real enemy who does not want these little ones to be free from the chains the hold them as orphans.Yesterday we received our LOA, our letter of acceptance from the China. It has been brought to our attention that there is an error on our approval from the US government. This error could be corrected, and a new approval issued tomorrow, or we may have to fill out another application and pay a fee and be delayed in going to get Haddie.As always, we trust the plan of our Father. We also know that He desires to hear our hearts. Our hearts are that our sweet girl would not have to wait another day and that this approval would be sent tomorrow. Please join us in praying over the next 24 hours that the officer, Mr. Michael James, who will make this decision would extend the approval to us with no further paperwork or fees.Thank you so much! It is so amazing to call upon this ARMY to pray!!
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
