Leaving for Ethiopia

My parents left for Ethiopia this morning, loaded down with all sorts of supplies for the hospital AND $1800 and a new ‘forehead swipe’ thermometer for Dr. Mary, thanks to y’all!!   They will be arriving in Ethiopia on Saturday and will be there until August 4th.  I know my folks would appreciate prayers for safety and health and that they will use their time in the best way possible while they are there!   Thank you so much for your part in their mission.


  1. I love how God speaks to people and lets them dig just a little deeper than they thought they could! $1800 – hallelujah!

  2. Wow.

  3. Will keep them in my prayers.

  4. Happy 4th of July, Mary! I will be praying for your parents too.

  5. Brightest of Blessings to your parents and to Dr Mary. How wonderful! You know, some days I get all worked up about the floods here in the Midwest and then I realize things would be so much worse and I am blessed.

    you are a cool lady

  6. Many prayers and blessings to your parents, sister, Dr. Mary, you and your family, and the many people that will be helped.

  7. God’s richest blessings!
    I wish I could be a fly on the wall to see Dr. Mary receive these gifts.
    Our God is a great big God and he’s up to something good.
