Judy Doyle was fifty-five years old, and had just gone through a terrible divorce, already had one adopted son and could not afford another; then she begins to notice the trees.
“All the trees across the campus were in full bloom and the Lord said this next season of your life will come just as suddenly, and I thought I wonder what that means, and so the next month, my sister Joy calls, says “Judy are you sitting down, I was praying for you this morning and I had a vision, I saw a little boy. He’s an orphan , he was 7 years old, she said, he has light olive skin, light wide spaced brown eyes, light brown hair; God has another son for you” and the moment she said it, I knew it was true and I knew what God meant when he said this next season in your life will come just as sudden, just as unexpectedly”.
A month later Judy’s sister Joy had another vision.
“And she said, “I saw this old Jewish man; he was bent over a cane and they were praying for their grandson in an orphanage”.”
Judy travels to Russia, visits a number of orphanages, the boy she is looking for is not there. Then on her last day, she calls her sister Joy begging her to pray again.
“She said I was so sure, then she started praying push him to the front of the line”. Well that next day, she handed her a stack of files; one thousand files, she puts her hand on the top and says God help me find this boy; she puts her fingers in the middle of the stack and pulls out a boy that matches everything perfectly.”
There was the round face, the light olive skin, the brown eyes and something else her sister had said he would have a sweet servant's heart.
“He had a big homemade roll”., Olga said. “That’s his only snack for the day”. And he held it up to Jarrett trying to give it to him and Jarrett didn’t want to take an orphan’s food. Josh refused. He made Jarrett take the big piece and the Lord said “servant’s heart”, and I said is there anything else about this boy, and she thought, then she said “yes, he has elderly grandparents, who are so concerned for him because he is the last of their family line, their very words”. I said “I wish to adopt this child,- she said you don’t have to make up your mind now, -no I wish to adopt this child.”
Judy had her little boy, but that was just the beginning of this miracle. Yes there’s more and we will share that next Sunday night. Stay Tuned.
