So it's been almost 5 months since I've posted and I really do need to do an update post because this is the only record I'm keeping of our lives and my kids might want some pictures to look back on one day.
But, I must document God's goodness in the lives of our friends first.
Our friends Travis and Robin leave tomorrow for Ethiopia to bring home their long awaited daughter. They leave in just 3 short hours to board a plane that will take them back to the country they love to meet a sweet little girl that they have longed to hold for over 5 years.
If you've just landed here and don't know their story, you can catch up on this long and winding road they have taken to get to her here:
Today's message in church was from Exodus 13 and 14 and specifically on how God led the Israelites on a detour. They could have taken the short and easy way, the direct path to the promise land, but God chose to lead them into the wilderness.
