To the parents and families who are waiting to welcome home their precious children from China …
This letter is to comfort and reassure you during this long wait for your beautiful children.
Your faith has probably been tested in ways that you could not have imagined. I just want to remind everyone, Jesus is always with you and will never leave you.
As scripture tells us, God’s timing is perfect, even if and when we don’t understand it. Although waiting for God’s plan can be hard, He is always with you. One of my favorite scriptures reminds us, “They who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). It is encouraging to learn that Jesus knows exactly when everything we wait for will come. Yet I am so truly grieved that in our humanness, it hurts to wait … but there is hope.
I pray you will hold onto God’s promises in this season. I pray that the Lord gives you strength and hope.
