It is wonderful to wake up and realize you have been eaten alive at night by mosquitoes!  Thankfully we have a malaria medicine!  Let's hope it works!  The Ethiopian sounds of car horns and birds singing is a delightful alarm clock . . . providing you got enough sleep!  Rick gave today's Devotion based on Phil 3:14 . . . spiritual maturity and laying a strong, good foundation.  This tied in great to our visit to the construction site of the new Widows and Orphans Home.  It is wonderful how all of our devotions are tying in so easily to this Mission Trip!

Today was a nice relaxing day at the Widows and Orphans Home.  We are busy holding babies, playing with bouncy balls and coloring in coloring book with the younger children.  What a great way to be Jesus to these children!

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

  1. I cannot believe the dang mosquitoes got a hold of you. How bad. Yes, I will be praying for that. I think morning devotions with the team are so important and precious during the mission trip. I bet you enjoyed holding the babies::::))))
