Happy New year!  Last year at this time we didn't even imagine we would be celebrating  in a Pizza shop in Ethiopia listening to Jonny Cash!lol 
Today was a great day.  Yabsira is like a sponge.  She has learned so much English and she understands alot of what we are saying also.  One of her favorite things to say is "I love you Daddy!"  She is very sweet and full of ENERGY!
Robel our guide took some of us to do our last minute shopping.  We met some of the homeless children he sponcors to go to school.  It costs money for everyone to go to school here.   So many of the children never get the opppertunity to go to school. 
The Tennants and Savages left to go home this evening. Please pray for their LONG plane ride with their little guys and that there are no delays.
This will most likely be our last post in Ethiopia.  I think tomorrow will be interesting.   We will post when we get home.
Again thank you all for your prayers and support!

Yabsira sounds wonderful, what a sweet, amazing little girl--it breaks my heart to think about the 'older' children who are waiting. Praying that you have a safe trip home!
