We are Dave (aka Dad), Lory (aka Mom), Allison, Abby (aka "The Bigs"), three year-old Amelia and six year-old Bereket (aka "The Littles"). We are figuring out how to be a family of SIX. May God always be glorified!
TEAM TASFA is a group of twenty-eight of us who just returned from remote southern Ethiopia, where we were privileged to serve the orphans and widows there. It was the best two weeks of my life!
Friends of Orphans and Vulnerable Children
What could be better than an Ethiopian welcome, FOVC style?

(This picture is for Amelia. If she was going to pick out her favorite picture in the world of a surprised person, er, monster, this would be the one.)
We had email, voicemail and phone conversations with our coordinator today.
OUR COURTDATE IN ETHIOPIA IS NOVEMBER 18!
Nobody knows exactly how this has happened. Yes, our file has been re-opened in the Ethiopian court. But we haven't even sent all of our documents over yet! We haven't even applied for our I171-H yet.
We don't know how this came about, but we'll take it!
We will pray now that we can complete the U.S. immigration piece in record time so it won't hold us up from traveling.
