{Sayonara Dallas!}

Monday, July 09, 2012


Ethiopia. It's finally here! This morning I fly from Dallas to Atlanta to meet up with my team, then from ATL to Amsterdam, and then from Sudan to Addis. Pretty sure I see dry eyes, shared headphones with new friends, and lots of vertical napping in my future. Can't wait. Each day I'll be uploading photos and posts on the blog, so be sure and check back for updates! Also feel free to follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Please help us spread the word!
1. Tweet about the trip! – I'm so excited to be partnering with @food4thehungry ... such a stellar org.
2. Share my posts and the other bloggers’ posts on Facebook
3. Sponsor a Child

Here's to zero more sleeps and to learning from those who are much happier with less than what I have.
#grateful
Em

Hey Emily,
I know we have never met, but I feel like I know you through your blog. :-) I just realized your going on the same trip as one of my old friends. Lindsey Nobles is a friend of mine. She use to live in Birmingham. She is so much fun! I know y'all will hit it off. Saying a prayer for y'all to have a safe trip. Can't wait to see pictures. Tell Lindsey I said hello! :-)

This is too good! Ethi is won't know what hit them. Sheesh. You.Are.Amazing. Seriously so proud of you, honored to be in your life, & thankful that you are willing to be used by the Lord. You challenge & encourage me so much Em.
More than the first black cherry toms of the season & warm beds that remind you that simplicity is beautiful.

How do you pack everything you need in one backpack? I need that talent! Praying that things go according to God's will and that He blesses your socks off!

Instagram makes the world a whole lot smaller! I started to follow you through Bekah Stewart, and you and David Molnar, who I began following through a mutual friend, is on this trip with you!! Praying for your team as you experience being the feet of Jesus!
