Kombucha Day

Since we on the west coast are 11 hours behind Addis Ababa, we're going to start another 24-hours of fasting and prayer this evening at 5:00 pm, around the time Addis is waking up on Wednesday. We're so appreciative of all the people who have joined with us in this, in whatever form you can. Fasting is a big mystery to me, and if anything, denying myself food just reminds me to keep praying. Our friend Susan, who organized the last day of prayer and fasting, had the good idea of drinking kombucha on these days. I did it last week and will do it this week as well.

I'm not sure how much rest I'll get tonight, knowing that the meeting may be happening during the middle of our night. Even more chances to pray, I suppose. We're expecting to hear some sort of news sometime Wednesday. Thank you again to everyone checking in and praying.

Have been praying since I got up this morning (which was about 9 am Addis time - being 2 hours difference). Work day is at a close in Addis because it is 4 pm here - so I will wait anxiously to hear from you about the results of today's meeting. Shelia (Skopje, Macedonia)
