Berhanu's departure!!!

Today is Tuesday 13th April. Brahanu left last Wednesday. Our God is an awesome God!!!!, He gave Bethany and I the peace to go the airport and Oh boy, was it sad, yes, but, we both had a peace knowing 2 things. One our Lord was in control, and two, Jim was over in Ethiopia, so it felt like he was not leaving us yet.
The house has been so quiet without him, and I have even been calling the dogs, Berhanu! Bethany just said last night that the night before she felt really lonely without him (her and Berhanu have shared a bed for the last number of months, due to Berhanu being scared at night.)
Berhanu went on the plane like a little man, a few times going up to the airport he said "he was scary", which meant, he was scared. When the time came to leave us he went away no problem!!
Berhanu was delayed in London for 24hrs due the the guy at the desk in LAX not reserving him a seat on the flight from London to Addis!!!
Well he arrived on Saturday morning in Addis and Jim and his uncle and his sister were all at the airport to welcome him.
I have had pictures of Berhanu in Addis with his sister, Maza and his uncle, but Jim has not manged to email me and let me know how Berhanu was. The reason for this was that not long after he came off the flight, the four of them jumped into a 4x4 and were going to Brahanu's village, 12hrs north of Addis!!
So far as of this morning, Tuesday 6am, I have not had any more word from Jim, so not too sure what is going on and where they are at this time.
I will post later in the week and let you know what has been happening to Jim while he has been in Ethiopia. By that time I just have heard how he got on at Berhanu's village and have some more news.
Jim is also now on facebook and also there are some pictures and updates on the church website.
Keep them all in your prayer, for safety and for God's will to be done and for all the right people to be in the right places.

Leaving Day

Well, the big day has arrived!!!!!!!! The one that we always knew was coming, but kept putting it to the back of our minds.
Berhanu leaves for Ethiopia today at 4.30pm with Karen (MKI social worker).
Please keep our whole family in your thoughts and prayers today as it is breaking each of our hearts to let him go. I had Kim on the phone this morning from Scotland, and she was upset, and Christopher last night tried to get through and could not reach us, so Berhanu still has Chris to say goodbye to. Poor Bethany is beside herself!!!!!! Please pray for her that she gets the strength and the peace today that she needs.
Pray for a safe travel for Karen and Berhanu, as they have a long journey ahead of them.
I thank the Lord for putting this little man into our lives. God knew what He was doing when MKI passed Berhanu on to the Nicol Clan!!!
Thank you to everyone who has followed Berhanu's journey in the US.
This is not the end, this is only the beginning.
Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!
