While I'm gone...


Right now I am probably driving to the airport getting ready to board my flight to Ethiopia. I probably couldn't sleep last night because I was so giddy with anticipation. I probably woke up early just to watch my husband sleep for a while, knowing that I am going to miss him so much while I'm gone. Right now I am probably praying that God uses me in spite of myself on this trip.

I really hope you pray for me to. I can do nothing without the power of God in my life.

I have a few verses I wrote down to meditate on while we are gone. I have scheduled them throughout this next week. I hope you'll take a moment as you read them to remember us.


"Your abundance at the present time should supply their need." - 2 Corinthians 8:14

Truly, they have so many needs. I pray that God uses us, and his abundance in our lives to help them.


See you all when I get back!

Love,

Jennifer
