Ethiopia here we come!!

We are packed and ready to go!  We've had quite a week of trials and hiccups but we are ready. 

The first part of our trip will in Kombolcha where our church and other families sponsor children through Children's Hope Chest.  We have your care packages, jump ropes, soccer balls and more packed for the children.  We pray they will be a blessing to the children.  With the help of the One Child Campaign and private donors we were also able to purchase a guitar for the discipler assigned to Kombolcha.  The children will learn bible songs and verses to music!  Hundreds of children will be blessed by this purchase!

On the second half of our trip we will meet our daughter!  We cannot wait to finally be with her.  We will go to court to gain custody of her on May 18.
Please pray for our children and Rob's parents who will be caring for them.  Also for our meeting with our daughter.  We would love it if you would pray that MOWCYA (it's similar to social services in the US) will write a favorable opinion letter to the judge and it will be on the judge's desk the day of court!  We cannot pass court without a MOWCYA letter.
Thank you all for your support and prayers.  I hope our next post will be from Ethiopia!
