Leaving on a Jet Plane!!!



Finally!!!!  It's here!!!  Our much-awaited, much-anticipated trip to Ethiopia to work with the kids at Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory care-points!!!! 

Nearly 200 orphaned and desperately poor children are now being served by these 2 care-points.  Our team of 18 people will be spending 3 full days at Kind Hearts and 3 full days at Trees of Glory - working with the kids - teaching, mentoring, building relationships and demonstrating the love of family to them!!

Our travel team members span the country (MN, OH, WY, WI, CA, IL, TX & IN) - and many of us have never met face-to-face.  But we all share the same heart for these precious kids.

The entire team leaves tomorrow from their hometowns - and we will meet in Washington DC for the flight to Ethiopia on Saturday evening.  I'll update from Ethiopia as often as possible - whenever we can get an internet connection.  Please check back often!!

I can't wait for new posts!! The visit to Kind Hearts was one of the very best parts of our trip. The children were so precious. I could have stayed all week.
