on the 11th of this month we hit our 6 month waiting for Camp mark.
I was in Korah, Ethiopia and Stephen was having a 24 hour fast from technology at the lake to read/reflect/make goals.
I thought he would take a pic with a 5 & I would with a 1 or vise versa but he didn't get the memo.
I guess he had no one to take his picture.
But here we are - 6 months of waiting.
* our agency says current wait time for referral is 19 months *
I can't believe that out of the 6 months that since we DTE (dossier to Ethiopia) I've been in Ethiopia two months & Rwanda one on our waiting date.
Every month I think, "I'm not going to be anywhere interesting next month on the 11th" and that has NOT been true. I've only been home in Midland 1 out of 6 months (which if you know me well, you know that is no surprise)
I love that I celebrated this month IN Ethiopia.
Just like I did the very 1st month!
I have so much to tell you about my extra week in Ethiopia but that will have to wait.....
because I'm headed to Atlanta today for an adoptive mommas retreat!!!!!
I seriously can't. even. wait.
to be refreshed, encouraged, spend time with the Lord and with new friends that share in my same love for orphans!
I have no doubt that me & my blog BFF Lauren will spend many late nights talking, crying, laughing, praying, then laughing and crying some more.
Will you pray for this weekend?
That God would form great bonds, friendships and partnerships
that He will speak clearly to me about what to do while we WAIT
that I'll start to process more of this past trip to Africa.
and get your dollars ready.....
it's our week for Give1Save1 starting SUNDAY!!!
our really good friend/brother Dustin helped us make an awesome video that really tells our story and we would be HONORED if you helped us spread it. Tell your friends. facebook it. tweet it. blog it. email it. the more people that hear, the more people will hear the GOSPEL and will maybe be encouraged to ask God what he wants for their family!
PS- It's Lauren's week now....so head over & give HER your dollar too!
