Leaving for Ethiopia

The bags are packed and in the car. In a few hours we will leave for Ethiopia. I cannot believe that it's time to go. I feel as though I'm in some strange time warp, where time is distorted. It feels too soon to go yet so far away.

Please pray for our dear son Igor. He is extremely sad that we are leaving for the week. He insists on going to the airport with us at 4AM. He will have a great time with aunt Shawn but he is already missing us and we haven't left!

We have a small travel group-
The Savages
The Sparrs
We cannot wait to meet them!

We will try to blog from Ethiopia but the current travel group has had a hard time getting an Internet connection. They have also dealt with power outages. So, we'll try our best!
Merry Christmas!
