Please also pray for our group of twelve traveling and serving together. Pray that we will be full of love to have hearts to love what God loves. Pray that we will be healthy and strong (in body and soul) to work hard. Pray that we will weep for these children, that we will laugh with these children and that we come home ready to fight for them.
Our tenative schedule is below along with links to the homes we will be working in. Check http://www.togetherforadoption.org/ from June 10 - 19 to discover what we are up to along the way. Ethiopia is the the nation of origin for my much beloved coffee bean, so I certainly hope that I get to enjoy some while I am there!
