Red Letters Campaign- Progress Has Been Made

Okay guys, since my last post Julie and Mark were able to reserve tickets for the same flights we are on. ALL of them! Isn't that amazing!

We also booked (right Julie!?) our accommodations at the Ethiopia Guest House for the first week we will be in ET. We are sharing a suite that has a common family room area and a common bathroom. That way we can have lots of extra room to sort and organize all our donations, etc. Stays at EGH include breakfast and lunch with the option to purchase dinners very inexpensively ($5).

In other news 3 more families have been added to our tentative travel group. That bring the total to 11 families. That at least 22 adults. WOW we're going to be a large group! I am super excited. Our large size means that we will most likely be staying at the Addis View Hotel for the second portion of our stay in Ethiopia.

Lastly, I am working on taking the curriculum a friend who directs the elementary program at our church loaned me and making it more appropriate for the orphanage setting. I'm simplifying language and reworking stories for the smaller setting. I am super excited. We've got three messages to share. It should be a blast. I can't wait to hang out with the kids!

Jen, oh sweetie! So much is going on in your life right now. I think the emotions are VERY expected. I agree about worship...and I would say specifically thanksgiving. I need to be doing that, too :) I figure that's a good way to combat the fear that threatens to creep in. I will be watching like a hawk the week after Thanksgiving. I am so excited for your huge TTG!!! BTW, I thought about your perfect video seeing your guy for the first time after ours went so horribly awry :) So funny :)
