Hooray...almost here!

Can't believe it.......I'm going back. One year ago I hadn't even been to Ethiopia! Now I'm dying to go back! :) Tonight the family(minus 6) all got together so we could hang out AND so that I could have one last yummy meal!:) Thanks Mom for dinner and thanks Em for the yummy fruit pizza! :) Here are some pics.......I already know I have huge family support but huge OH supporters also! :)

I'm sure gonna miss this little guy for 10 days!

Some of my biggest fans...:)

Thanks for helping me pack...and for the fruit pizza!!!My parents....I'm so blessed.
I had to add this one....such cute girls...! I was saying "open your eyes" and she thought I said open mouth....ha! :)

Thanks Bec for packing all 3 of my donation bags! :) Amazing! Wish you were going!:(

I truly am blessed. Thank you ONCE again for giving so I can go. Please be praying for our team that we will truly shine the light of Jesus................and that we would give all of ourselves to serve these children and people of Ethiopia. I will TRY and get on and write but just in case.... Please follow along at the Ordinary Hero blog. Oh, and be watching those that bought a sheep......can't wait to show pictures!:) Off to get some sleep! Love ya, Rachel
