I woke up a couple times in the night to text Steve and see if there was news. Finally, there was. He was given an interview at 3:00 PM, 6:00 AM our time. I had already prepped him, so I didn't plan to wake up--but then did, mysteriously, right at 6:00.
At 7:00 he just texted me to say "Bekkah!" This is a very useful Amharic word that means finished and enough all in one. So it's official!--we're finished. The visas will be ready for pick up tomorrow morning, and we hope to get the group a flight out tomorrow. I asked if the girls understood, and Steve said they seemed "giddy."
