We still don't know when we actually get to travel back to Ethiopia. We could be cleared in 2 or 3 weeks or 2 or 3 months. We would obviously prefer a few weeks, so please join us in praying for things to go smoothly with our case.
We need to start packing and planning for our daughter to come home soon. At the same time, we have to prepare our hearts that we could still have a long wait of us ahead. It's a hard place to be in.
We trust the Lord and know that without a doubt His timing has been perfect so far. Not exactly as we always wanted, but perfect, just the same. He has seen us through so much and we continue to put all of our trust in Him, not in the U.S. government, not in our agency, not in ourselves, but in our great God.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5
