Christ is risen!
This morning, against all odds and amidst universal pandemic, and an Embassy in Addis Ababa closed for that reason, God in his providence arranged events for a little farm girl from a remote village in northern Ethiopia to obtain, on the spot, a visa from the U.S. Consul General there.
The story is too miraculous to do it justice in a short post, so it will have to wait until later.
But Hiwot Tesfagiorgis is ready to board the plane — yes, in the midst of a pandemic: when most of the baptized are afraid to walk across the street and are being told to stay home, a Little Girl braves all, in obedience to God’s providence, ready to cross continents, oceans, and international boundaries to be saved, to be made-well and whole.
For now, it is only necessary to sing Te Deum in thanks to God for obtaining this answer to years of prayers & cooperation with his holy Will. For only God can accomplish such wonders, so evidently impossible to men.
Non nobis, Domine! Sed tua da gloriam!
