Our Mission in Ethiopia

Sunday, July 13, 2014

We had a fun day yesterday.  Ruth and Yeabsra invited us a couple of weeks ago to their Parents' Day at their private school, True Way Parents' Academy.  It was yesterday morning and we took them to it.  Their father is working in Tigray and their mother could not get off work at her hair salon so we are SO glad we could go!  Ruth (12) was the announcer for the WHOLE program and looked SO pretty in her traditional dress.  It started an hour late and lasted another 2 hours.

She also did an Ethiopian dance with
a boy in her class. I got it on video.

mother was sitting next to us

Ruth (left top and center) was #2 student in her school!

They brought out dabo (bread) and lit a candle
to celebrate.  They use dabo instead of birthday
cake on birthdays too.
