A family needs prayer today!

I am a member of a yahoo group for families that adopted on of the children of Promise through Bethany. We have become quite a close knit group because we really focus on prayer and following the Lord's leading in all of our lives. Today I want to ask for Prayers for a woman named Sandi. She is actually fron Lansing, Mi (which for those not in Michigan is about 1 1/2 hours from where I live). Sandi and her husband are in China now adopting their little girl. This is their first child. We just found out a little while ago that Sandi's husband, Dennis, whent into a diabetic shock and passed away at one of the local hospitals. They have 6 days to go in China. Please pray for Sandi and Hannah. I cannot imagine what she is going through over there. Please also pray that our own INS does not give her a hard time about bringing this child home. The adoption has been approved but we never know what our own INS will do in this situation.

Also I found ou that Sandi's mother and brother are trying to get emergency visas to go and help. Please pray that these come through very quickly.

My heart is so hurting for this family. Thank you Lord that they are Christians.

Oh my word! I can't even fathom what this poor woman is going through! How incredably overwhelming.

I can't even speak...or imagine what Sandi must be going through. My heart hurts for her - and I will keep her (and the precious new addition to her family) in my prayers)

Oh my word- that is just awful! How horrible in the first place but to be in a foreign country and just having adopted- it's too much.
We'll be praying.

That is... I don't even know how to put into words what I'm feeling right now! I don't know her but I still hurt for her - when one part of the body hurts, we all hurt.

I will definately be praying for her and the whole family!

Hi I'm from WLNS 6 News in Lansing. We're interested in Sandi's story. Does anyone know of any family in the Lansing area?
