I received an email from Joy and from Jeff- hooray! (Can you tell I’ve been anxiously waiting to hear something??) They were in Nekemte and planning to make the long trip to Adama from there on Friday. They were bringing back a little six-week old baby and a toddler to our Adama Widows & Orphans Home. I know that once they have a minute to spare, they will send me some good stories about their time in the west. I do know that they faced some significant spiritual resistance there so your prayers for them are so appreciated and needed!
Part of their cargo for this trip was to deliver this:
This team has been going non-stop ever since their feet hit African soil. Joy has shared with me what a blessing Mark and Jeff have been to travel with – they pray together daily and have needed that in so many ways. And I’ve heard that there’s a lot of laughter going on too. Neither of those two pieces of news surprise me one bit. I’m so proud of these servants of Christ! Together with Tezera and Abebe, they are accomplishing so much for this ministry, for our families here and for God’s kingdom.
Please pray that they stay healthy, get enough sleep and have the stamina they’ll need to finish strong. Pray also for great favor wherever they go. It will be a busy week. We have three families in Ethiopia this week for their court dates!
Thanks for the update Becky!! We will keep praying for everyone there, and all their comings and goings. It is awesome to hear what God is doing… I can't wait to get back there!!!
