Embassy Time

Solomon went to the Embassy Monday to request an appointment. They gave him more forms to fill out and we had to file a SEVIS 901 form today and pay another $200. So, now he goes back to Embassy on Monday again to request his appointment for approval of his VISA. Please pray they do approve it and he can be here by June 18th.

We have been involved in Precept Ministries International, which produces inductive bible study courses, for several years now.( Our Ellie has been going to their Bible Study boot camps in Chattanooga, TN and has loved it. It was a result of last years camp that she started her ministry Etaala International

Well we requested a scholarship for Solomon to attend this years boot camp and it was granted. So, now we need him to get here in time. We are praying he will be able to bring this bible study program back to Ethiopia. The Lord keeps providing scholarships for Solomon to be studying his word!

Please join us in prayer that he will get an appointment next week and it will be approved. Thank you to all who are following our journey to Solomon!!

P.S. I have started writing the book so I am not posting so much on the blog now. Just not enough hours in the day to get it all done!! I will keep updates coming however.

Also, our Ellie and Jonathan are arriving in Uganda in the morning. They are there to care for orphans and Gods precious people. Please pray for their safety and for them to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus. You can read updates on Etaala's blog too.

Amazing to see the work God is doing in Solomon's life and how He is using you to facilitate that work. We will be praying for Solomon's appointment.

Great update! Very exciting things going on. I will be praying for Solomon's Embassy appointment tomorrow. And for E. and J. in Uganda. What a blessing to have THREE of your children serving the Lord in Africa!
Can't wait to read your book one day!
