Health is a wonderful gift from God and remaining in good health is important so we can serve others during long days physically challenged by different water, food and living conditions.

**This is so exciting to me! We have a couple of things lining up for us. We may spend some time talking to a man who is doing some major work with urban development (a new interest of mine) and we also may visit the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital. This is exciting to me because one of my dear friends will be moving to Ethiopia to work there!
Sunday, July 25th – Thursday, July 27th // Travel to Langano for the Sports Camp!
**These students come from villages all over Ethiopia. Most will come from Muslim backgrounds. Two requirements for camp: One: You cannot be a Christian. Two: The parents must sign off that their child is participating in a Christian sports camp. Amazing how God moves in this world!!!

Here is Ethiopia. You can see that Lake Langano is just south of Addis. Rumor has it the trip is about 4 hours on a two lane highway…and I am guessing the highway isn’t what I am used to:-)
