Hey there friends,
We hope you are well and that you are as happy as we are that summer is here. It seems the madness of this year that has gone by so quickly will finally have a chance to slow down and breathe. That always feels nice.
For our families in Ethiopia summer comes a bit later than it does in America, but still its jut around the corner, and will be nice for them to take a break. Their schooling is intense to say the least, they are all learning Amharic, French and English starting from grade 1, on top of after school tutoring and their bible study and other activities at church, its hard to believe they even have time to sleep! These kids live the definition of hard work, and its incredible to see how they have risen to the challenge and how well they are doing.
We have some really fun summer plans in the works for them, some good friends of the ministry have put together a retreat at a lake in Ethiopia for a week which is going to be amazing, and then Journey Church from Montana is sending a team over to do two weeks of VBS for the kids. This is the third year for them to come over and do this, and its always been a great time where the kids are able to grow in their faith.
Just wanted to write with a quick update for you all, and say hello. We continue to be blessed by your generosity and support for the ministry, these families are truly blessed because of your giving every month.
