We're Going to Ethiopia!

We got the long-awaited, joyful phone call today. We are cleared to travel to Ethiopa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We actually have the option to leave this weekend, but we are unable to for several personal reasons. But we have plane tickets on hold for Wednesday June 2nd. That's just two weeks from tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!! Can you tell that I am excited? :)

Oh, there is so much to do. And it is so fun!

Hang on, baby boy. We're coming to get you!

SO excited with you, precious sister!!
Blesings, Blessings--would love to hug your neck before you go!!
Love, Gillian
P.S.
Hey, do you want to take along one of our weavings so that you can show them what you want?I do not know the name of the market that we were brought to for that. The Injera holder was found in the Merkato market--just have an in-country person do the bartering in Amharic for you. :)
