Day 2 – Flying and Arriving in Addis

My friend Danny (“learning…“) and I will be joining Dave and BeckLynn Black in Ethiopia for two weeks. I will not be able to post updates while I’m in Ethiopia, so I’m publishing these posts to keep you updated on our plans. We would appreciate your prayers.

Most of this day will be spent in the air, flying from Washington, DC to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with a quick refueling stop in Rome. The flight will be long.

So, what will I be doing? First, I’ll be walking around the plane regularly (I promise, Margaret). Also, I’m be reviewing my notes. I’m planning to lead a group of elders through the book of 1 Corinthians. Also, I’ll be speaking to two different churches. Then, hopefully, I’ll be able to sleep some also… and read, of course.

What can you pray for us today? Sanity and sleep during the flight… and grace as we go through customs.
