It's getting real

One week from right now, Candi, myself, and our two girls will be waking up in Rome on the first leg of a trip that will soon shape the rest of our lives. Please pray with us for safe travels and for our 2 little ones waiting for us in the Ethiopian orphanage. But please pray for the hearts of my 2 girls. Prepare them for what they are going to see...the poverty, devastation. Help them understand that though these people have few or no material things, that they are rich in joy. And while many do not know Jesus, they live with a much stronger faith than those of us who proclaim Jesus and have to rely on him for little in comparison. Pray for all of us that our hearts be broken for this nation and its people. May the pictures be etched in our memories lest we forget through the passage of time.


  1. I'm a new reader, but I'll keep you in my prayers and thoughts!

  2. I can't believe you leave in 3 days. I am so excited for you!
    My nieces and nephew (all the same ages of Sarah Beth, Haley and Carter) spent a month in Kenya last Fall and loved it. The girls keep asking when they can go back! I'm excited your girls get to make the trip and will be praying for them:)

  3. AMEN! Can't WAIT for you to hold your littles!
