We're OFF!!

So we made it through the first leg of our journey and God is with us! We had absolutely no problems with check in and the gal from United Airlines was an angel I am sure. Our flight seemed to....well, fly by! And once we were in Washington D.C. we made our way down to baggage claim. A sweet young gal came up to me and told me she and her husband were with AWAA as well. She seemed to know me and when I looked confused she said she has watched my blog, knew my name, and saw it labeled on our cases of formula. We hugged and it was like a little touch of heaven. I had prayed this morning that God would continue to show himself so my faith remains strong through this journey. This unexpected surprise of meeting the wonderful Terwilleger family was just the confirmation I needed to let me know once more that he is in charge of all of this. Next stop...Ethiopia!!
