Oh. My. Goodness.

I cannot seem to find the time to take a deep breath!  Or to write a post for this blog, apparently!  I'm hoping to find the time to write some more soon (sooo many thoughts I'd love to share), but for now I just want to offer this piece of information...

We're leaving on February 26.  That's 16 days from now.  We'll be flying out on a Friday morning and arriving in Addis Ababa on Saturday morning after a 17 hour flight.  We'll meet Mihret and Yoseph on Tuesday morning, and they will be with us from then on. We'll fly out of Addis on Friday night Ethiopian time, and arrive back at Dulles on Saturday morning (our time).  Somewhere in there, due to the time change, we lose an entire 8 hour night of sleep.  Might not make THAT up for a long time!

Please keep lifting up the prayers.  Oh, how we need them.


  1. Oh I can't wait for you all!!!!!! What joy my friend. Is it just you two, or are any of the kids going too? Love, Sarah

  2. We are excited. Your embassy date of March 3 is Jennifer's Birthday. When are Yoseph's and Mihret's birthdays?

  3. So happy for you guys and Mihret and Yoseph! Only a few more weeks!
