Prayer for Mynor
We have a prayer request we'd like to share with our Casa Shalom family all around the world: tomorrow is a very important day for 2-year-old Mynor, whose birthday we celebrated a few days ago and who was found abandoned in a ditch as a newborn(see Saturday's post below). At 12 p.m. CST, Mynor will have "definitive audience" with the courts to determine his legal standing. He will either be declared adoptable or will continue in "limbo" as unadoptable but without blood relatives, and likely to spend the rest of his life in an orphanage. There is a local Guatemalan family that has been trying to adopt Mynor since shortly after his arrival at Casa Shalom - they are a wonderful Christian couple with the means to give Mynor the loving, secure home he deserves! But due to complicated and restrictive Guatemalan adoption laws, the chances of this family being able to adopt him, or even become his foster family, are slim. Mynor needs your prayers! We are praying that the Lord touches the hearts and minds of the officials who will be handling Mynor's case tomorrow and that a miracle will be done so that he will be able to join this family that loves him. We ask that you join us in prayer tomorrow that the Lord's will be done in Mynor's life!
