Ashebir's court date has been rescheduled for Nov. 2nd. We won't likely know anything further until then. We're praying for Ashebir's aunt... we don't know her condition now, but hope she returns to full health for her own family too.
As far as the Ethiopian partnerships are concerned, I heard back from Compassion the other day. They were very encouraging and look forward to investigating further opportunities in the future, but they are working with the first 30 Churches so far. This information helps tremendously as it further refines our vision. I will be placing more time and emphasis in initial work with Food For the Hungry, Ethiopia. They've got a great history, and an awesome strategy.
