two more...

only TWO days until we leave.  my stomach fills with butterflies just typing those words.  life has been a crazy whirlwind of activity and we're so ready to go.

we're pleading for prayers.  will you join us in praying for the following things:

*for court.  may mountains be moved and all our paperwork be present.  may the judge find mercy on our case and on may 29, may we hear the sweet words...."he is yours".

*for moses and his tender heart.  may he know the depth of our love and commitment to him.  may he know there is something different about us.  may our time together be spent well, loving on him and the other children at the House of Hope.

*for health and energy (we arrive in Ethiopia at 7:45 in the morning of the 24th after a thirteen hour flight).

*traveling mercies

* we say goodbye.  may the memories of our time together and faith in God's perfect timing...carry us through until we meet again.

we have been blessed by your prayers, friendship, shoe donations! and love.  thank you for walking with us.

we hope to write again soon, with news of great joy.

with all our love and gratitude,
emily & james
