Hi!!! We are the Gilliss family & we are moving to Ethiopia...yes, thats in Africa!! Crazy, right?? Oh, believe me..we've tried talking ourselves out of this crazy, life-changing decision more times than we can count! It'd be so much easier to just stay put in our comfy-ness! Oh, but GOD! We just cant turn our backs on what He has up His sleeve for us..we'd be missing out on just way too much goodness! Oh, did I mention...we are moving to ETHIOPIA with ALL of our kids...not just a few of them, but ALL 5 of our crazy loving munchkins!! Prayer, financial donations & well wishes for our crazy lovin family are extremely appreciated!!! We can't do this without YOU!!

I love this paragraph from Crazy Love by Francis Chan...
  Similarly, we are each given different gifts and talents by our Master. The thing that matters most is how we use what we have been given, not how much we make or do compared to someone else. What matters is that we spend ourselves.

So, we do NEED YOU! As humbling as this is, we recognize that God will place the right people at the right time in our path!! Here are a few ways you can support our family...
