Cool Sandals

When I show friends this photo they always ask if I took them home from my hotel room. I did not, but I did look for them in the markets.

This is Lidet Kifle - she lives just down the hill from the Masha guesthouse. Lidet's father was physically abusive and her mother is losing her eyesight. The father no longer lives with the. Lidet has a brother and sister; they greeted me everyday . . . like a father. We had tea and biscuts at her house, a tradition round house made of mud and straw. I miss them and worry about how they are doing. I recently wrote a letter and hope to hear back.

Which century are we in? Ironic thing - this guy would pull out a Nokia!

Over 11,000 Views

I stopped posting some time ago, thinking that people were done reading about my experience in Ethiopia. I just happened to stop by tonight to find that over 11,000 views are registered on my counter. The last time I checked there were just over 1,000, I think. Helps to have a facebook account I suppose.

I still think about my trip often and of the people there; I just sent a few notes overseas, one email, and had shay at our local Ethiopia Restaurant, Queen Sheba. Of course, my waitress, being a good Ethiopian, tried to feed me, but I had just enough birr for tea.

Amesegenalihu for reading.

Many Months

Since I last posted anything about my trip. But that does not mean that not much has been happening. Last Sunday I went to a regional meeting in Yuba City. We were shown two new possibilities: an inexpensive vehicle that could be used for microenterprise in Masha, and a handheld, wind up Mp3 that could be used for evangelism and teaching.

The Ethiopian Mission Network Conference will be held at Fremont Presbyterian on April 23-25, 2009. You can register to attend at the link on this site.
