And they're off!

Mom and Dad just left the house about 20 minutes ago. Mrs. Baker is here with all of us and we're about to eat lunch. Thank you so much for your prayers on this journey...

"But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." ~Isaiah 43:1-3

And for Mom, who will read this after they arrive in Addis Ababa: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." ~Philippians 4:6-7

Resting in His promises,
Rachel =)
