Hey Y'all! It has come to my attention that some folks weren't sure exactly what I meant a couple of posts ago sooo, here is a little clarification. I am returning to Ethiopia in 11 days! Yes, for real :) I will be spending 8 days there, serving primarily in Korah with some friends distributing shoes for a TOMS shoe drop and also visiting the children at the boarding school who were sponsored through Project 61! Yahoo!! I cannot wait to go visit them and see them in their new place and see what they think of it and bring them some supplies and gifts. There are also several other ministry things in Addis I may get myself into once I get there-things like that have a way of happening, haha. I am SOOO excited to see my dear friend Bizi again, as well-he and I email/chat frequently and have some plans to maybe do some stuff with some of the street kiddos in the city. The whole trip sort of came from out of nowhere and feels a little bit crazy to be going back so soon, but I am really excited and beyond blessed to have the most amazing husband in the world who is the one who said "go!!" and even booked the ticket for me :) He is seriously the best, most supportive, understanding guy in the world and has the same passion for Ethiopia I do-this trip was a great fit for me and so he said go on, I'll catch the next one-did I mention he is AWESOME??? And by the way, his triathlon brought in over FIVE THOUSAND dollars for Korah! We were just blown away at how God got so many people excited about bringing water to our brothers and sisters in Africa-He is so GOOD!!! I will probably continue to be a bit scarce with the posts until I leave since life is a little nutso right now with the regular chaos of life here at Chez Things paired with getting ready to take off again, but I plan on blogging my adventures from there so I hope you all will come along with me!
