Friday Morning

Another glorious morning, here in Addis Ababa!  The sun is shining, the car horns are beeping and the air is thick with pollution already!  It's great to be here!

After a breakfast of French toast, Brita led the Devotion on Phil 4:13 ~ I can do all things through the Creator who strengths me!"  She, with Tim's help, played Nicole Britt's song "Walk on Water" to help get her message across.  Once Devotion was over, Mark shared with us that no one will be pressured to do anything they were not comfortable with today.  You see, we are off to a Leper Colony.  We have been told that there are 15,000 – 20,000 people in this colony.  This is the largest Leper Colony is Africa.  Today, we will really be Jesus' hands and feet!

We dropped off Andrea and Robert (they are going to a new orphanage) and we picked up 4 others on our way to the Leper Colony.God will surely be with us today!

Life is too short and the planet is too big to stay in one place too long!


  1. My prayers are with you and the whole team who are going where Jesus would have gone.

  2. Oh I got ghosebumps. That so reminds me of the books from Kay Warren when she was so descriptive of meeting the leper and how they looked at her in shock and tears streaming down their face after she hugged and loved on them. I am sure without a doubt that this day will be one of your most amazing days.
