Our Mission in Ethiopia

Monday, December 23, 2013

It's FINALLY beginning to look a little like Christmas!! Ü  We returned from our Mission Couples Conference in Uganda last night.  What a FUN week!  Before we flew home to Ethiopia, we were able to go to a couple of stores there and we found a few Christmas decorations, two African nativities and a little tree! Yahoo!!  (There isn't much here since Ethiopia doesn't celebrate Christmas until January 7th.)
                           Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Our little Christmas tree and nativities from Uganda

I actually got this at a white elephant gift exchange we had at Paraa
Lodge with the other mission couples but someone "stole" it during
the game... : /  We were happy to find it in a little shop in Kampala the
day before we left!  It makes us smile....

This one is made from banana leaves and bark.  We saw one like
it in the airport in Addis Ababa but this one was in the Kampala
airport at 1/3 the price so we got it! (Baby Jesus does look a little
like E.T. but it's very unique!)

"Deck the livingroom with boughs of holly!!"

This tree made from wire and beads is the FIRST Christmas decoration
we saw this year at a little gift shop at Paraa Lodge the day after my birthday,
so Bob bought it for me! The book is from our mission president and his wife.
The crocheted square was made by a little Ethiopian woman on the street.
