The prepatory work for decorating our Ethiopia Transitional Home has begun for the team that is traveling to Addis Ababa tomorrow. As you can see a primer base is being painted. We moved the babies into another room so they can paint their room with gorgeous murals that an adoptive mom out of Utah is creating for us! You can see some of her work here. God has really given her creative ideas and a joy for this work. They also hope to change some of the light fixtures in the home (unless you like this disco ball light fixture! ) and buy material to sew window treatments.
Thanks to all of you for your donations to An Orphan's Ticket Home which is making this possible. We'd still like to raise about $5K more to be able to refinish the wood floors and purchase the lighting fixtures needed. You can donate to this endeavor here. Please be sure to note that your donation is for "Decorating the Ethiopia Transtitional Home".
Also, Visiting Orhans, a mission sending agency that our own President Brian Luwis founded is sending another team to Addis in November. This team will help with any work on the Ethiopia Transitional Home that this current team is unable to complete. If you'd like to go and help, please let us know and apply online here. Craftsmen, electricians and anyone with creative ideas is welcome!
