The Ethiopia Trip

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my latest adventures and I’ve barely written about the thing that has been keeping me the most busy.   I’ve been contemplating for almost a year now traveling with my friend John Gross to Ethiopia to begin the ground work for some strategic missions work there.  Our specific goal is to build relationships with believers in Ethiopia and lay the groundwork for an orphanage there.  Up until about two months ago it didn’t even seem like I would be able to go on the trip, so talking about it seemed premature.  When everything did come together it became obvious that we had to move quickly to get everything done.

So now, in less than three weeks, a team of four of us from our house church along with John, Gizaw, and three others from Kansas City will be venturing to Ethiopia to see what the Lord would do when we show up.  We would very much appreciate any prayer support we could get.   Also, if you’re heart is moved to give towards the cause, we would love that as well.  You can check out more details here if you’d like more information.

Because the time is short, if you decide to pray or give, leave a message in the comment section so I can connect with you somehow.  Prayer is especially needed and we are quickly working on an effective way to organize our prayer support.  Thanks to all of you who have become an amazing form of support to Christy and I.

We love you.
