Prayers for Ntokozo

Hello all!

Now that you have all 'met' Ntokozo through the interview I did with her on our blog (if you haven't seen it, watch below...), I would love for you to be praying for her!  She is in Durban for the holidays, another city in South Africa, and she is spending time with her family - the aunts, uncles, and cousins of her deceased mother and father.  She was really looking forward to this time, especially to share about her son Jacob and how she is growing and changing.  Unfortunately, some of her family has been gossiping about her and now they are even ostracizing her - and during  Christmas!  She has ended up spending more time with friends than family, and feels very lonely.  Today the social workers go to court to work more on the case of her son Jacob, so he can be released form the orphanage where he is living to a foster home near where she goes to high school, and they won't even join her in prayer!  She is discouraged and talking about coming back early, which is fine with us because we really miss her around here.  Kieren is still asking for her 'sissy' and we miss her laughter and joy in our home.  I can't imagine the ways she feels abandoned by her family, especially when she is longing for them to welcome in her new son.  Please be praying for her while she is away!!

Lots of love,
