Ethiopia, here I come!

Well, it's here! I am packed and ready to go. The only trouble now is that I have an early flight, but I'm so excited I can't go to sleep. So, here I am.

My sister and the team are already on their way. I can't wait to be there. Soon, very soon!

Please pray for us. Here are some specific requests:
  • safe travel for the entire team (many legs of travel)
  • that we would stay healthy during the trip
  • than many children would feel loved and cared for
  • that Jesus is glorified in all that we say and do
  • that we can serve the Ethiopian people and orphans and love them like Jesus loves us all

Thank you for already praying for this trip, donating items, giving and praying some more!
Can't wait to show you pictures!!!

Countdown to Ethiopia

I can't believe the mission trip is almost here. There is a lot to accomplish before heading for the airport in 9 days, but I'm up for it. My goal is to wrap up loose ends through this weekend, pack my bags, and then rest in the Lord and get geared up to go.

We just had a conference call with the group. What a great group this is. The only person in the group I have ever laid eyes on is my sister, but these women do not feel like strangers at all. We have the same heart, mind and focus. To say that I'm excited about this opportunity would be a HUGE understatement!

On the adoption front, we are still waiting for that piece of paper. We'll be ready when it gets here.

Time for you all!
