A much needed update!

Well Team Truman has officially grown by two more feet! (after a long, long road) We did not pass court on Nov. 18th as there was some missing paperwork, so we were rescheduled for Nov. 30th. Well, Nov. 30th came and AGAIN we did not pass! Ugh...MOWA forgot to bring the paper. Our in country coordinators worked hard to figure out why and where the paper was and lo and behold, Praise Jesus, we passed FINALLY on Dec. 2nd! So now we are a family of 8. It is so exciting and overwhelming at the same time.
During these past 3 weeks we have been being attacked by the enemy BIG TIME; not only with all the issues with court for Endale (Tanner) but our oldest son Zachary, had a mass on his brain that he had removed last Wednesday and the biopsy came back negative! Yahoooo-God is good. Really, really good. Again some other news was that I am in need of a hysterectomy. I was suppose to have surgery today, but postponed it until spring since our son needed surgery sooner than soon. I also have had 2 mammograms come back suspicious, so am having them biopsied on Dec. 23rd. Please keep praying...We are also leaving this Thursday to say "good-bye" to my grandpa who passed away last Tuesday. He was one of the greatest men to have walked this earth and he is missed, dearly! To put it mildly things have been stressful around our house. We have vowed not to let the enemy get to us: "When God is for us, Who can be against us?"

Thank you all for your love and continued support. We are remembering the true reason for this season. We hope you enjoy Christmas and find your joy in His love. We hope to travel the end of January to bring Tanner home. Keep praying for him to "see" our faces and know that we are going to bring him home soon.

Big time love and peace,
Mat and Stacey (and the rest of the Truman crew)
