iPod pix from the past 2 weeks

the Broten kids at the airport in Washington, DC. We had to wait awhile (like you have to at any airport) but God was really gracious and all of our baggage got through. they didn't even weigh our bags (which were over the weight limit) even though they were weighing the bags before us. 

at the airport in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is much greener and is really a beautiful country, at least from what I saw of it. I got to sit next to a really sweet woman on the flight there. Turns out she was a Christian, and we got to talk some during the flight. We even prayed together before she landed.  God is so cool! 

one of the roads here in N'djemina, on the way to the market. I know the quality of these aren't very good, but like I said before, I don't want to carry my camera around and draw extra attention. I've been trying to pull out my ipod and take pictures really fast before anyone notices. 

there's always lots of trash piled up on the sides of the road and it smells. everything is so different here. 

chickens at the market. 

hope that gave you a little of what the world outside the compound looks like. please be praying that God would allow us to find vehicles to buy so we can go ahead and leave the capital. 


  1. Wow. I loved beings able to see a bit of what all of that looks like! Prayers are with you!

  3. Looks like you all have a lot to pray about! Loved seeing these and will keep them in my mind.

  4. God is so Good. Thank you for sharing Africa with us. I will be praying for you. God chose an awesome young lady to spread his word. May God bless you. Bonnie Powell (Louisville, Ky)
