A World Orphans team is currently in Ethiopia visiting our partner churches and children's homes there. For updates and trip reflections, stay tuned to the WO blog. 

Yesterday I had the joy of attending the International Evangelical Church in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.  It was incredible to look around the room and realize we were joined together in worshipping God with believers from every continent – over 61 different countries – while not EVERY nation and tribe and tongue was represented, it brought to mind how beautiful and wonderful it will be one day.

It was amazing to me that in this city of millions of people, some 10,000 miles from my home, I would “happen” to run into 6 different people, including 3 Americans, that I have met in various different places in the past 2 years.  It made me think of the multitude of people I will one day be reunited with for eternity together.

Revelation 7:9-12

9After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.
