life is gobez.

21 Mar

you must know how my appreciation for each of you grows each day & that your love and prayers is felt in enormous ways.
God continues to be so faithful & his joy continues to overflow.

sorry it’s been a while since my last update, i’ll try & catch you up.
a few weeks ago, i went camping out in the awash desert. saw lots of wildlife; monkeys, warthogs, camels, impalas, crocodiles, baboons, and heard the lions roaring in the night. awash was so gorgeous, we went to the falls, and then drove out into the desert to an oasis where we went swimming in the hot springs. one of the coolest, most beautiful experiences. just a long weekend off school, you know, the usual. (pictures are posted on facebook, check them out)

school is great. the past few weeks have been the best yet with the kids. there is only one week left in this term before our mid-semester break. so you can be praying for energy for all of us to really give this last week our best.

teaching english at the local high school has been going really well. the kids appreciation & determination continues to amaze me. pray that God continues to really open doors through the relationships we build with the kids.

in one week, i will be off to kenya to go on safari in the masai-mara. 🙂 i’m beside myself. & i’ll be sure to take lots of pictures.

if there is one thing that i hope you all get from these updates, it’s that you don’t have to be in ethiopia or any foreign country to experience God like i am. i’m just blessed to have this backdrop. praying that God reveals himself to each of you in your own scene. i’ll leave you with this quote from oswald chambers…
“In every wind that blows, in every night and day of the year, in every sign of the sky, in every blossoming and in every withering of the earth, there is a real coming of God to us if we will simply use our starved imagination to realize it”.

thank you.
i am blessed.
salam-neow.
