One Day Before Departure

Getting ready to travel to Ethiopia doesn't seem to get much easier. After a handful of trips, I would have thought that it would be simple. No such luck. I have all the tools packed in one bag. (52 pounds...do you think the airline will notice?) I have Luke all packed. (12-year olds can wear anything right?) Now I just have to take care of me and my clothes. (I just can't seem to get 5 days out of one pair of work pants like Ron.) At least I have a beautiful Friday to finish packing.

As I started the day, (sitting in the hot tub with fresh coffee - ahhh...) the stars were still out. I have never been able to get out at night in Ambo to see the stars. Maybe I will this trip. Ethiopia is so near the equator (5 degrees north) I wonder what I'll recognize? Soaking there, thinking about the trip and day ahead, I did think to ask
"God, is there anything I'm forgetting?"

I'll let you know if I get an answer.

Steve
