The boys sent their mom an email last night updating her on how much fun they are having with their Papa and how much they love her. When I awoke this morning I got this response:
Hello all my beautiful babies and my beloved papa!! I am in a fog, like this is all a dream. Solomon is so precious we hugged and hugged and hugged and he is so grateful and excited that I am here. Misganaw and his dad came to the airport too. THey had to wait 3 hours for us to get through the visa and customs line but they didn't mind. I SEE GOD ALREADY!! My roommate here at Cherokee is the new Children's Hopechest worker who is here to work on the Kolfe and Kebebetsehay sponsorships. She is new and says I know more about Kolfe than she does so she asked me to come with her there and help distribute all the sponsorship letters. This is such a divine appointment!!! She said she knows we were meant to be together and we are going to be working together in the USA. Ellie, they are also starting a youth drive to get them involved with this work. She is personal friends with the Harris twins, she worked 16 years in publishing and is working for ZONDERVAN right now as well!! I love Misganaw's dad, he is a very sweet man and I feel like we are already family. I said that to him and he responded " A FAMILY CREATED BY GOD!!" We are going to work on our schedule today, just going to go eat. I had to pay $60 for my carry on w/Ethiopia airlines. The power might go off so I am sending this now just in case.
She followed up with this email a little later:
The house is nice here. It's Ethiopia!! I did not sleep much on the plane or last night. Just can't sleep yet. I have to call Belay and get everything coordinated so I better run. I love all of you with all my heart. I am praying for you all, especially you Ellie w/ all the littles. just take it easy and relax...dont stress out...have fun and remember...we are serving the Lord Jesus!! I will talk to you again asap.
