I was finally able to talk with Thomas about the new children and hear a bit more about the floodgates that have opened up. There are now 14 children in the two families and he said they are all doing well. They are from age 5-8 and seem to be happy to be in a home. But also confused as to what is going on. There is no doubt these kids have all had a very rough life so far. Please pray for them and the mothers in this time of transition. I cannot imagine how tough this must be on all of them.
I have a picture to share with you. Their faces say it all here.
This is clearly a big transition for them. But God is moving and I am sure they will be smiling soon!
Also. There is more. And this news has us scrambling. There are 26 more children coming as soon as we set up four more houses. I am sending the setup money today and hopefully we can have these houses open soon. Things just went from calm to hurricane!
Please pray for all the staff in Ethiopia. They are wonderful people and I am sure they will rise to the challenge. But this is insane!
