Ready. Set. Go!

After a night of thunderstorms and very little shut eye, we are are up and at ’em and ready to go! My Dad drove us to the airport and we unloaded our four totes on the curb. Such a funny sight to see. I know the security guard had to have been thinking “Yeah right lady, you think all of that is gonna make it on board?” I was praying all the way to the ticket counter for a kind agent. They tried hard to charge us for both checking two bags but our kindness and prayers worked!
THE TOTES ARE EN ROUTE!
We are ready for a day of waiting, reading and resting. Newark here we come and then on to Frankfort, Germany (never been to Germany before) then a plane change and off to Addis Ababa! Can’t wait to set my feet down on African soil. 
Blessings to our whole community who have helped this dream to come true. Love to you all!

Helping the Least of These…

A special word from  Tom Davis- 
“Every single person can do one thing to help kids caught in trafficking. Making a commitment to pray is a huge thing because nobody prays for these girls. The key is to get educated then get involved. This is one of the darkest forms of evil in our world, but it’s where our light shines the brightest!”

 

Not all of us are called or seek to adopt a child in distress but all of us can support those children who need us throughout the world. Consider sponsoring a child and writing to him or her as a family. How about donating to an organization that helps orphaned children to remain safe from the growing trafficking industry. As Tom Davis so eloquently says above, prayer is is something we can ALL do. Pray for the least and the lost. Educate yourself on one of the fastest growing industries in our world, the selling of human beings. It is happening where you least expect it, even here in the USA and we can all help to end such suffering. Here are just a couple of sites/books that have truly encouraged us to act:
