23 Jun Wednesday June 3rd 2015 – Departure from DFW for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, via Dubai.
[Over the next few days i will be posting stories from a trip to Ethiopia with the Adera Foundation from which I just returned. I was blessed to be the photo journalist for this trip, telling stories with images and words of people that are making a difference in the 147,000,000 global orphan crisis, people who are the hands and feet of Jesus to the least of these. Our group had prepared for months, but there is always an unknown when heading to a country which you have never been and experiencing a culture that up until now you have only read about. We had all prayed that God would not only allow us to touch others though his healing power but that our lives would be touched as well. As the trip unfolded God responded to our prayers in beautiful and unexpected ways. My prayer is that your life too will be touched as you experience our journey through the stories that came to life over the 13 days that we were in and around Ethiopia with The Adera Foundation.] How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7 June 3rd 2015 – And we are off! 15 hour flight to Dubai, next day we fly to our destination of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
