Southeastern College called this evening with the great news. Solomon's TOEFL exam results have arrived and he is in!! They now prepare the I-20 Visa and will get it to me in 2-3 weeks. I then have to get it delivered to Solomon. If you are traveling to Ethiopia please contact me if you can hand deliver for us. He then makes his embassy appointment and if they approve it, we can book his ticket to come to the USA!! This is all so surreal.

I called Solomon via skype to tell him the great news. It was 1:00 a.m. his time. He had to go outside so as not to wake up the boys. When I told him he got approved for the I-20 Visa he was overjoyed. He said; "Now I can't sleep the rest of the night!" He is also in a surreal state of awe as he watches the LORD perform one miracle after another. He said this exam was sooooo difficult!

Now we need to rally the troops to pray the US Embassy will approve the Visa. This is the last step in the process. If they approve it, we book his ticket and he is on his way to the USA!!

Please keep us in your prayers as we seek wisdom, guidance and provision from the LORD! Thank you to all of you who are following this journey and praying.

Remember, I am praying for at least 100 people to be at the airport to welcome him so stay tuned and please join us!!

"Now this is the confidence that we have in HIM, that if we ask anything according to HIS will, HE hears us. And if we know that HE hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of HIM." 1 John 5:14-15

In the Waiting Zone

Just wanted to give the latest status of our journey. No word yet from the Toefl exam, no word on a new job for Jerry. Just waiting on the Lord for HIS perfect will and HIS perfect plan. Stay tuned as we wait upon the Lord!!
