Send off

After all the fund-raising and presenting, after all the prayer and planning, after all the packing and waiting, the Kassas have completed the first leg of their journey.  They left Columbus last week and are now in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Celebration

Two weeks before, Xenos hosted a send-off celebration.

Transition

As you can imagine, it was very difficult to pack up everything and move one’s family overseas.  Pray for the Kassas that they will be able to settle in to their new life in Ethiopia.

There was quite a bit of luggage!
