Day 4 – Travel to Alaba

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.

Today, Saturday, we travel from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to the town of Alaba. This will be our home for the next 10 days. The trip should only take 6 hours – if nothing goes wrong on the road.

Interestingly, we’ll be traveling in a vehicle that the people of our church helped to purchase a few years ago. Someone had given us a large sum of money. At the same time, we learned of the need for a vehicle in Alaba, so we gave the money to them. I’m excited about making the personal connection that we started several years ago.

Please pray for our travel… and remember to pray for our families. We miss them so much!
