The Countdown Begins Again!

Seven weeks until I am back on an airplane to Ethiopia!

I can't even express how excited I am to be going back. Plus, the more it sinks in that I WON this trip, the more I wonder what God has in store for me. I am praying that God will prepare my heart for this trip. I am a little anxious. Our last team was so amazing - we had no conflicts, everyone was connected by God's Spirit, and we truly had the chance to minister. I pray that our Feb team has the same unity, and although the trip will be different, I pray that we can truly change the lives of those we meet.

Please be praying for my friend, Abenezer (see the pic on the right). He is very sick right now and is not in school. I pray he is able to go back to school soon. I also pray I will be able to make the trip to Shashamane school to see him while I am there.

Remember, we have another trip scheduled for August, and we still need team members! Be praying about that! Is God asking you to step out of her comfort zone and minister to orphans? Email me if you feel God tugging at your heart!

  1. Hello Randi! My name is Erin. My husband and I are just starting the looong process of adoption. From Ethiopia! Also, I have some crazy fears and phobias. I actually found you through Robin's blog. She has the emetophobia blog. I wanted to say that I think it's great that you are able to travel and do all that you're doing. It's amazing that you can put your fears aside. I'm already feeling anxious about being in Ethiopia and getting sick. It's such a silly thing, I know! More than anything I want to meet our little one. And I need to put that first. If there's any other words of wisdom you can give I'd appreciate it so much. I think what you are doing is incredible. Thanks for sharing!


    Oh my email is (Please write to me if you have time!)
