Today, January 7th, is Christmas Day in Ethiopia!!! "Melkam Gena" means Merry Christmas in Amharic. This is the day they celebrate Christ's birth in Ethiopia!
We are celebrating this morning at our house too...
with cinnamon rolls and Ethiopian coffee! Yummy!!!
Well, we are PRAYING boldly for our baby girl and for Ethiopian adoption lately! In fact, lots of AGCI families all over the country were all praying last night at the same time! It was so neat to be on our knees praying for the orphans of Ethiopia, and know that so many of our other friends were doing the same thing!
Jody started reading a new book from Mark Batterson yesterday morning called "The Circle Maker". He updated our FB status yesterday morning with this quote from the book,
"God honors bold prayers; bold prayers honor God!"
So, yes, we are praying boldly for our Caroline Faith! I got my birthday wish...it was just a day late! We moved a spot closer to her!!!! :)
Praying that this is our last Ethiopian Christmas without our Ethiopian princess!
"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." Jeremiah 29:12
