And we're off! ... to Ethiopia!

Our team of 26 volunteers is leaving for Ethiopia!  Half of the team is meeting in Washington DC tonight while the other half is flying in on Friday morning.  We will all meet at the airport Friday morning for our overseas flight to Ethiopia.

Please keep the entire team in your prayers (for health and safety) as we travel to Ethiopia to work with our kids at Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory CarePoints!!  We return to the USA on Nov 21!

Suitcases of all 26 people are filled to the limit (and beyond) with care-packages, blankets and donations for the kids!  I will try to update my blog while we are in Ethiopia but access to blogs is very limited and not very reliable in Ethiopia.  We seem to have better luck with facebook - so we will definitely post updates on facebook as often as possible (when we can get an internet connection).  Thank you to all the sponsor families and everyone else who made a donation or is covering the team in prayer while we are gone!!
