The Embassy

Pam and Juan went to the Embassy and they passed with flying colors! All their "i's" were dotted and all their "t's" were crossed so that means they are one step closer to coming home. Looks like they will be able to leave Ethiopia with no delays.

Pam and Juan were also able to take a planned side trip to the WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S PROJECT. This is a small factory where women and children are employed to make woven shawls which they then are able to sell. By selling just one shawl the money earned is able to keep one woman or child off the streets for at least six months. This project provides food and shelter for it's employees and it also helps them learn a marketable trade. Pam was able to purchase enough shawls to keep about 20 women and children employed for at least another six months. What a wonderful blessing this project is to women and children in Ethiopia.

Pam and Juan are enjoying this time with their new kids, but they are really looking forward to coming home to the OBX. They are all very tired and have had little rest. Justin continues to shy and quiet. Davis and Zoey are holding onto Pam tightly because they are afraid they she may leave them. Pam is reassuring the little ones with lots of hugs and kisses and they are praying together.

Although the waiting is over, the journey that God has planned for all of them is just now beginning. I cannot wait to read the sequel!

God Bless you all and thank you for your continued prayers...

I can't wait for them to get home...they still have a long road ahead of thm in the actual building of their family, but at least now everyone will be in the same room. All glory to Jesus.
