Unexpected Blessings


During our last trip to Ethiopia we received an unexpected blessing…

A young couple who had arrived in Addis on an adoption related trip dropped by the our guesthouse with three huge bags full of new shoes!  With the help of their church, they had collected shoes, stuffed them with socks and packed them into their suitcases.  I have wanted to post these photos for a while and give a SHOUT OUT and a BIG THANK YOU to Melissa and Jesse, and Pinecrest Community Church in Colorado.  You have made a difference in Korah!

 "LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL NEW SHOES!!"


I’d like to share with you a glimpse of what happened the following morning.  After the children finished eating at our Berta Breakfast Program we surprised them all with the shoes.  They were excited
and bright eyed, quickly lining up and watching as the shoes were carefully placed in row after row along the benches and ground.  Then the real commotion started as they began trying on shoe after shoe, searching for the pair that fit.  


I hope you all enjoy the many smiles that were seen that morning and thank you Pinecrest Community Church for making it happen! 

THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTED...
