Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Happy Ethiopian New Year! Here's a great website that explains a bit about Enkutatash...

We spent part of the day celebrating my sweet niece, Elli's birthday. She really is one of the sweetest girls in the world. I love her so much. It's amazing to see how she already has such a servant's heart at such a young age.

We spent the evening celebrating Ethiopian New Year by taking the Ethiopian babies out to dinner at A Taste of Ethiopia. Micah and Melia loved the injera and all the attention that was given to them at the restaurant. I was so impressed by Melia's ability to pick up the food so daintily with the injera. I enjoyed the little touch of Ethiopian culture we had tonight. It made me miss Ethiopia!

Later in the night Caleb read this awesome book that was given to us from a friend....
It's a great book that explains some of the Ethiopian holidays and talks about how amazing the Ethiopian people are. I recommend it!
