Alaba, Ethiopia: ETA 1 Month

It’s hard to believe, but after almost a year of praying, and planning, and preparing, my friend Danny and I will be in Alaba, Ethiopia in about 1 month.

We will meet Dave and BeckyLynn Black there. They will already be in Ethiopia, after taking another larger group to the southern part of the country. If you would like to read more about the Black’s work in Ethiopia, check out the “Ethiopia Files” on Dave Black’s site.

Soon, I’ll post a link to a prayer itinerary for our trip. I’m not going to ask people to promise to pray for us. But, we would certainly appreciate the prayer!

I’m excited about this trip. I’m hoping that God will be able to use Danny and me to strengthen the churches in the region of Alaba. I’m also expecting that God will teach both us much more than we will ever be able to teach the Ethiopians. Then, we plan to bring that back to our friends here in North Carolina (and soon Virginia for Danny).
