Greetings dear friends!

I hope that each of you are doing well!

I am thankful for the great time that I had in the States! Enjoyed spending time with family and friends; the holidays; eating many missed foods including seafood, NC BBQ, southern home cooking, Mexican, Thai, the best steak that I have ever had…and the list goes on:); watching college basketball and football…Tigers!; taking quiet scenic walks at Lake Johnson, the beach as well as other places; experiencing the beauty of NC from the coast to the mountains; visiting and serving churches and meeting with many of you and sharing about the work that we are doing in Ethiopia. Thanks to so many of you who helped make my trip truly memorable! I was blessed in so many ways! Thank you!

I arrived back in Ethiopia last week and hit the ground running, with a little jet lag :). Our team did a great job in my absence and I am joyfully, confidently and expectantly looking forward to all that God has for this coming year!

I believe this will be a great year for our work here. To help us accomplish all that God has for us this year, I want to ask if you will consider becoming a monthly financial partner, or, if you would consider making a special financial contribution at this time. Your prayers, encouragement, volunteer support, and financial contributions are greatly appreciated and critical to our success here. Thank you for being a part of what God is doing here in Ethiopia!

If you would like to become a monthly financial partner or if you would like to make a special contribution, please visit us at  Please designate the Ethiopian Missions Account.

Thank you and may God bless you all!
