Our Mission in Ethiopia

Sunday, September 28, 2014

We had a FUN week with our Jamie!  It was sad to see her off at the airport last night.... We are SO glad she was able to come and visit us here!  Here are some more photos...

Sunday morning at our Debre Zeyit chapel

Jamie with our Young Women in the Debre Zeyit Branch
on Sunday after church

We met Hope Arising Sunday afternoon as they drove 
through Debre Zeyit and got the t-shirts and put names on
them and organized them by branches.

Lunch Monday at the Liesak Resort in Debre Zeyit
on Lake Babagoya, where Jamie had her first Ethiopian
traditional meal of injera and wat.

We stopped for lunch at Sabana on our drive to Awassa and saw

We found a project needing to be done and 
organized the Awassa Branch library.

Two little kids in the branch came and helped
us put the books away.

We did it!
