Eliza clamored for the puffy envelope as I pulled it from the mailbox. A package! And the return address read…Ethiopia. Thanks to the US postal service it was forwarded a couple times but finally landed at the right place. How long has this been en route? I wondered.
When I told the girls a package arrived from Africa they knew it could only be from one friend. “Glori Sue! Glori Sue!” they chanted. Glori Sue makes it into our prayers often. She remains one of Eliza’s favorite Virginia friends and the girls feel it important to pray for her in her far-away home.
Ali and Sami bounced impatiently while Eliza tore open the padded envelope.
