At this point we are packing our bags, and on pins in needles awaiting a phone call that could give us approximately 10-15 days notice before we are to be present in the courts in Ethiopia!!

PLEASE be praying as we are up against a deadline.  The ONE person who needs to sign our document is not 'i…
