Update in Ethiopia
MOWCYA (The Ministry of Women, Children and Youth Affairs) which is a big part of the adoption process in the Ethiopian government was shut down for almost two weeks due to no power, and now they have slowed down significantly due to new staff from the outcomes of the recent elections.
Please pray for diligence in the new team that they are building and that MOWCYA will be staffed with adoptive friendly people who will process papers efficiently.
Please pray for Embassy clearances for families waiting to go home (It seems that as more families go home then they will start matching more children again)
Please pray for both the US government and the Ethiopian government officials to see the importance of their jobs and become more efficient in processing times.
Please pray that more adoptions are able to be processed before the rainy season comes! It is coming soon! (The government shuts down once it starts to rain)
