We had a wonderful Friday and Saturday in Addis with Elder Tasara Makasi,
an Area Seventy in the Africa Southeast area and also our Area Director
for Seminary and Institute. He is a great man!
We had a Christmas devotional for all the Church employees in Ethiopia
and also the three senior couples in the mission with Pres. and Sister Chatfield
(left), Elder Makasi (center) and Bro. Chad Meyer. We also went to lunch
together at the Sidra Hotel after the devotional.
Here are four of the five employees of the church here.
On the left, Esubalew Alemayehu Biru (Habtu), the office manager
for the Uganda Kampala Mission in Ethiopia, Temesgen
Chewaca who works for LDS Charities, Andualem Milkessa,
Assistant Office Manager and Getu Keno on the right, Facilities
Management. They are ALL great guys!
Elder Tasara Makasi from Zimbabwe, now living in South Africa.
We also got to see cute Abdi and Tariku, our
friends and seminary students when we were
in Addis for three months.
We do NOT love the traffic in Addis….. : /
The sunset tonight as we drove home to Debre Zeyit was GORGEOUS!!
And the moon was bigger than I have EVER seen it, but I couldn't get a good photo...
