Where My Heart Is

My heart is in ETHIOPIA. I was reading through a really cool blog last night and they just got back from a trip to Ethiopia. Seeing all of the pictures of the people, the kids, the countryside. I mean everything about it. I can't wait until March when I get to go again. I have so many ideas going through my mind. There is so much we could do for these people.

I see the pictures of the kids running around in no pants, no shoes and filthy dirty. And I picture Ade. He could have been one of those children. Wondering where their next meal will come from. I wonder how Ade's birth family is doing. I hope they are doing well and they are healthy. Or maybe he wouldn't have lived to be that old. I think the statistic is 1 in 5 kids in ET die before the age of 1 maybe. So sad. Thank you Jesus for sparing our guys life!

Just missing Ethiopia and counting down the days until I go again!


  1. I know just what you mean. Although we won't be going again till probably next summer or fall. But it's hard to picture what Lijah's life - or death - could have been like.

  2. I hear ya Bethany! I can't wait to meet your new little one! What age group and gender are you going for this time?
