We’re Home

Today is usually Multitude on Mondays and I thought that I would give you our Eucharisteos from our court trip.

105) the sweet gal I met at the airport on our way to Ethiopia who came back to me and asked our son’s name so she could pray for him by name

106) 2 brothers in Christ that we traveled around Ethiopia with for the week.  They encouraged us, made us laugh, and prayed for us.

107) our beautiful beautiful son.

108) the special mothers that love him and take such good care of him

109) the couple we met from Spain who said they would pray for us as we wait to pass court

110) the beautiful women of the Fistula Hospital and those that work there to bring healing to them

111) Ashli York at Restoration Orphanage. I am in awe of this gal. She inspires me. (more on her later!)

112) church in Ethiopia—need I say more?

113) the other families we traveled with—hearts joined together.

114) our children—who stepped it up to keep things going while we were gone.

115) our friends who jumped in to help in our absence—I appreciate each one of you!

new life out of the water

My “Eucharisteo” this week?

Two of my children choosing to be baptized by their daddy and youth pastor.  Choosing to make the public demonstration of dying with Christ and rising as a new life. A new life that shows change and desire to be like their Savior!

My prayer for them:

The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.  Deut. 30:6

packing packing packing

The day is almost here! I am ready. Feels like it has been a long time coming. What a journey it has been!!
We received a ton of donations—formula, meds, diapers, donations for the Fistula Hospital and much more.  Remember those “It’s a Girl Thing” pad kits? Yep—on their way for the nannies at the orphanages—30 of those going..the rest on the next trip!
The little guys helped by pulling tampax out of cartons (they had a huge box full to do!) so that we would have more room. Thankfully Ab never asked what those things were! :)

Here is on pic of some of the stuff. There was much more…and I came down to take pictures of it all..but hubby had packed 2 suitcases full already!  We now have 3 suitcases completely stuffed up to 50 pounds of donations and another partially packed.  We just have to squeeze our stuff in! :)
Thank you to everyone who donated supplies! They are much needed and will be so appreciated!
