"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO ETHIOPIA AND GIVE SOLOMON AND HIS FAMILY A CHRISTMAS!!!













































Thank you to each one of you that have brought us stuff to take to Solomon and his wife and boys-we are so thankful and know that he will be too! We had a "packing night" last week and stuffed as much as we could into 6 suitcases and two totes-one of them was full of stuff for our Hannah's Hope driver-Wass, and another for the special mothers that have taken such great care of Seble and all the kids and two of them were for Solomon's family. The rest are filled with clothes for the orphanage, and we left about 1/2 a suitcase to pack our stuff and another 1/2 to pack all the baby stuff we will need over there for Seble.
As excited as I am to go get our baby girl, I am very excited also to see Solomon and his family's faces when they see their stuff. We actually found a soccer jersey for the oldest boy-his favorite player-as icing on the cake for them! We have toiletries, shoes, clothes, jackets, food, and toys as well as school supplies and money for them to go to school.....thanks to everyone that has come together on this-we will for sure video and put it together so that you all can see their faces! THIS is what Christmas is all about and I can't wait!!!!! It is so much better than a regular Christmas gift....
But of course, the best Christmas gift is getting to see our baby AND actually bring her home to start the New Year off in a great way-what a new beginning and we are beyond blessed and so grateful to God for his precious gift of her.

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
