I received confirmation from the church today that Brent and his team have arrived safely in Ethiopia. They arrived their last night late (our time) and have already done quite a bit.
I received a brief email from Brent today (YEAH!) and he said that he gets many of the same feelings and thoughts from our trip to Jamaica 2 summers ago. He said, however, that when walking the streets he feels SAFER than when we were in Jamaica. ( He may just be saying that so I don't have to worry about him!) God is faithful.
Anyway, we are supposed to get some bad storms so I want to get out of this school building and not get stuck here. I'm doing okay (by the way)...I'll keep you posted. Sorry this wasn't a more lively post.
Oh...by the way-- one of my students shared from his writer's notebook today and apparently his uncle owns all the casinos in Vegas. I thought this was very interesting. (and another girl has shared in SS that her grandpa still owns slaves...) Oh the things 8th graders will say!
