Texas Baptists Music & Worship


Wow. This wears me out . . .
I am basically in need of a miracle to find someone that I do not know except for knowing that they are from the State of Texas; however, this unknown Texas lady is very special to our family because she doesn't know the testimony that she gave to our family about adoption and now, I am going to try to help find her to tell her our story.... Many of you know about our adoption story of Hannah Claire and how God proved his love for her, the orphan, when God moved in mysterious ways and used an old Russian man that we did not know and had never spoken too, to place a bible in my chest at the last second as I was exiting the bus that Andrea and I were riding on to fly from Moscow to Saint Petersburg. This bible was the last birthday gift (number 16 of 16) that we had been searching for and praying for to give Hannah Claire as a small reminder from her birth country of Russia. We had not had any success in finding any bible anywhere in Russia from searching through street vendors and bookstores, to looking in Russian churches hoping to buy a bible when God pulled out his "let me give you a testimony" moment in one of the most unique and literally terrifying ways to help bring and give glory back to Him by encouraging families to adopt children! Seriously, if you've heard me tell the story, then you know that the old Russian man who had for some unknown reason been shaking his finger angrily at us but never spoke to us and had moved to sit by the exit door was now staring directly at me as he slowly stood and began reaching in his long black winter coat to pull out, (You probably all know what I was thinking because we've all watched the same movies and it wasn't about to end well for this ole American boy!) a gun! But it wasn't a gun, it was a bible but not just any bible, it was a "Gideon" bible that was written in the Russian language. How cool and awesome is that? We had not been looking for any specific bible such as the Gideon bible that we received, we had just been looking for a bible that was written in the Russian language because I would not have known what I was reading since I cannot read Russian! However, we had now received a Gideon bible that was written in the Russian language and this confirmed to me that this was God tangibly showing me his love and care for the orphan through His word, the Gideon Bible! In 2008, approximately 49 million bibles had been delivered and freely passed out to anyone who would accept this gift by the Gideon's throughout the entire country of Russia but this Gideon bible was meant especially for Hannah Claire! I will never know the name of that old Russian man who probably gave me his only copy of the Bible that he had but I have taken this Gideon bible and shared this God-sized story at any bible believing church regardless of denomination or Gideon banquet to promote adoption to families and to encourage churches to begin orphan care ministries to support both the adopting family and the orphan. Now, this is where I need your help! Part of our story deals with some missionaries and one woman in particular whom we had met at the Atlanta airport while we were waiting at our terminal gate. I had spent some time talking to them before and during our flight from Atlanta to Moscow but I am not sure where they were all from or how they all knew each other. Once we had landed and were looking for either a taxi or bus to board to travel from the international airport to the domestic airport to fly within the country, these missionaries helped us by having someone who was with them translate for us and this is the woman that I am trying to find because this woman from Texas has no idea about that the bus that she put us on is the bus where we received this Gideon bible as I was exiting the bus that day! I want this woman to know how she helped make a dramatic experience in our lives come true because she could have easily talked to and put us onto any bus or taxi that day but God led her to that bus that day. I want her to know about the story that she played a role in without even knowing! I wonder if she even remembers helping us that day? She thought she was making an impact by serving in Russia for those 30 days and I know that she did as well as those other women who were with her, but does she know the impact that she made on my life in helping to encourage others to adopt? I doubt it! So, I will ask for your help in sharing this story with your friends, family, and church and especially anyone that is either from Texas or lives in Texas!!! Here's what I know: 1. This group of 14-18 women were doing missionary work in Russia for about 30 days. 2. This woman can speak fluent Russian. 3. The woman who helped us we were told was from Texas but I do not know where from in Texas. 4. We were all flying from Atlanta to Moscow in February 2009! This gives new meaning to, "finding a needle in a haystack!" Serving the fatherless together, Chris Gray [email protected]
Wow! Lots of you there!!!
