Ethiopia Count down!

I'm testing out the e-mail feature to make sure I remember how to blog while in Ethiopia. I cannot believe that I leave in a few days. l will meet most of the team at Dulles airport Monday morning.  We will arrive in Addis Ababa on Tuesday.

Karen did great job posting our schedule in Ethiopia on her blog! 
Here's our schedule:
Tuesday - 8:30 am Ethiopia time (8 hour time difference) arrive and travel to the Ethiopia Guest Home.  Visit "Promising" Drop-In center which serves 81 children.
Wednesday travel 6-7 hours to the town of Kombolcha (North of Addis) to visit Grace Drop-In center which serves about 180 children, but there are over 400 children identified in need.
Thursday - spend morning again at Grace Drop-In center and then travel back to Addis in the afternoon.
Friday - Visit CFI school which serves about 25 kids.  Visit "Hope for the Hopeless" drop-in center which serves 15 orphaned children.

I am enjoying your blog. We are awaiting the referral of our Ethiopian child (hopefully early to mid 2010). It's so nice to read the blog entries from when you were in Ethiopia to meet Henry and bring him home. Thank you.
