What could be better than an Ethiopian welcome, FOVC style?

God Sighting

So....Allison (our biggest Big) has been away at CIY Camp this week. She left Sunday, June 27.

Later that same day, we got word about EOR's investment in FOVC. The next day, we decided to get serious about a trip to Ethiopia, and starting contacting people about it. If you read our blog, you know the trip became a "go" over the course of this week, and we are on our way!

Allison got home from camp tonight. As we were having dinner together, she shared that she believes God has called her to do missions work with her life. Her experience last night was apparently very powerful for her, and she shared her heart with everyone at camp last night.

She has a friend from church who was also at camp. He shared, too, that God has called him to missions work. He said he wanted to serve in Africa. She and "Anthony" apparently talked and prayed together, and decided they will go to Africa together. Someday.

The scary part is this:

Neither of them had ANY IDEA that we are taking this trip in just six months.

Now that they know we are going to Ethiopia so soon, they are basking in God's direction over their lives and pretty much just crying because they are so happy. It's very sweet, and very confirming.

Of course, the parents of these two young missionaries are pretty stunned and overwhelmed, too.

(And, Anthony and Allison are really, truly, simply good friends!. Really, I mean it.)
