going back!

I am so happy to say that i have started working on flights and papers to go back to Ethiopia!!! I miss Ethiopia so much and cannot wait to get back into the country. I am going in June and will be there for two weeks. We will be going to Dube Bute for four days during our time in Ethiopia. I can't explain how excited i am to see them start transforming the village that once didn't have a clean water source that will now have new schools, many water wells, health clinic, vet clinic and much more!

I just put in all the checks that i have been receiving the past few months so in a few days, makes sure to check out my campaign to see your donation. I want to thank all of you again for your support and love during my journey in Ethiopia. You have helped change so many lives even through prayers and i can't tell you how thankful i am for that.

Our family had a great CHRISTmas!! We celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ and we couldn't ask for a better gift than him dying on the cross for our sins. He is our wonderful councilor and might God, prince of peace and everlasting father!

I got a new camera for Christmas so i am practicing my photography so i can take some good pictures of my next trip to Ethiopia in June. Thanks Dad and Mom!

I still have the shirts and jackets i am selling to raise money for Ethiopia  so if any of you would like them, please feel free to just email me or chat me through facebook.  T-shirts are $20 and jackets are $45.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Hawaii

For the past three weeks, we have been in Hawaii. It has been such a blessing being here and watching the little kids play together and see how the two Ethiopians lives have changed. They went from once living on the streets, to living in an orphanage, to living in California and traveling to Hawaii and Australia! God has blessed our family in sooo many ways and i am very great full for everything we have.

This is our first time ice skating and yes, it was in Hawaii...
