The following is an update from Team Ethiopia, a small group from Central Church in Memphis, TN, who will be serving as short-term missionaries at Children’s Home Ethiopia in June 2010. We’ve invited our dear friends and ministry partners to post their trip updates and prayer requests here on the TFC blog. Enjoy…
Because of some travel issues (most likely due to the World Cup in South Africa starting on Friday, June 10) four of us (Joe, K.C. and the McGugan’s) left a few days early and have an overnight layover in D.C. Our flight left Memphis Thursday morning at 9am with a stop off in Charlotte before arriving in Washington around 4pm. We were blessed with some good weather which made for a relatively easy trip.
Right now three of the four team members are sitting back and enjoying some cards as we get a little bonding/down time before the long flight tomorrow. Our travels tomorrow will take us from D.C. to Rome to Addis Ababa. All in all it should be around 15 ½ hours on the plane and we are scheduled to arrive in Ethiopia around 8am Saturday morning.
Please pray for safe travels for the four of us tomorrow and for the remaining five team members that will begin their travels on Saturday morning.
We thank all of you for your prayers and continued support!
