Exciting news!!!

I got word from our contact in Ethiopia that we will get to work in a little village outside of Adama that has 80 families that have converted from Islam to Christianity.

They are a people that have basically nothing physically but have a joy that has touched the team like no other.

We will meet with their elders and pray with them. We are currently working on getting money together to take flour and soccer balls to the village. I am also hoping we can raise enough money to help build at least one house ... each house is 300.00. Ok wrap your head around that one! 300.00 for a home!! Can you believe that?! Since we don't have alot of time I am not sure we will have enough for more than that now, but I am praying for God's provision for at least one home.

The team had our last 'official' meeting last night. Oh my goodness people, it's coming... really coming! :o)

We have been working on the last minute details, money details and other issues. :o) Pray for our team and the different personalities.

Here is a link to the blog that is documenting their time there

Thank you for your prayers we are all excited and loving the way the Lord is providing for each piece that we need.

Wow, Andrea! What and exciting prospect to have the opportunity to work in this Islamic village. Your team will bring so much encouragement to this group of Christian families. They will feel so much support from your group.

I'm so excited for you! Can't tell you how much I wish I could join you on this life changing trip.

Before you go, will you please be sure to post a list of your prayer requests for while you're gone as well as the dates that you're gone?

Thanks and blessings,
