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.
