It seems we are caught in the Ethiopian court closures. We have been given a court date of October 8th. Although this is not what we were hoping for we are still rejoicing as now there is an end in sight. The extra time will afford us the opportunity to begin to collect donations from friends and family. We have been offered a tremendous opportunity to make a list of supplies and give it to some co-workers in the food industry. They have generously decided to supply various much needed commodities for the transition house our children are in, and the orphanage they are from. Our family will stuff our suitcases full of everything from new children's clothing to school supplies and medicine. If you have a desire to participate in this opportunity to help these orphans during this most difficult time in Ethiopia(it is being called The Green Famine since crops are growing, but none will be ready for food supply until September or October), please contact our family via e-mail. We will be happy to transport whatever you feel led to give. As we wait through the next few weeks for our successful court date please join us as we pray for the safety of our children, and the desperate needs of the orphans and the people of Ethiopia.
