Summer 2018 Update from Ethiopia

Dear Praying Partners,

We are one week back from Bali and again in Ethiopia.  The time of celebration and family was sweet and unruffled.  Thank you for praying!  One of Caleb's friends came in from deployment in Syria the week before.  Pray for Aaron to find peace with God.  He talked of coming to visit us this Fall.
