Ethiopia Day 5

What an incredible day. The Lord has truly met us here. We finished our part of the project at Bright Hope. When we left today the foundation was getting ready to be poured. Its amazing how much Ethiopians can get done in a day especially when its all done by hand. AMAZING!

In our morning team prayer time Alicia had asked the Lord to do above and beyond what we could even imagine. Today as we were finishing up our project Alicia asked if we could talk to the workers and share Christ with them. ABSOLUTELY!! She sat down and began giving them the gospel through Sammy. It was incredible to watch and seeing the faces of the guys as the gospel was articulated and the orthodox belief had holes in it they realized their desperate need for Jesus and gave their lives to Christ. We were able to get them hooked up with Sammy who will follow up with them and disciple them. Only God. It doesn't get much better then that.

We also saw the well that had recently been put in, we will be posting pictures of the kids drinking the water as soon as we can. Its amazing to watch children that haven't had water, they were so excited. It was amazing to see.

In the afternoon we took Hindafta to be evaluated for placement in transitional housing. It is so neat to watch the Lord work in all the details, Hindafta will be safe, she is SO happy and watching her transformation in her eyes has been incredible. Michelle my friend.....you have blessed us beyond words allowing us to be the ones to walk this out. God is GOOD!

Dinner with Tsegaye was amazing, closing out our day at Kaldi's was perfect. We're all great, pray for healing, David and I are a bit green. Cipro is our friend! Love to you all, thank you for praying!!!

Praying for the green to go away! Am really enjoying reading your updates, and am so happy that God designed time in a way that you and Drea are able to experience this all together! Give her a hug for us ... and please hug Coral for Caitlyn. May God's hands be involved in every word and every step you take.
