Sunday in Ethiopia

Our first Sunday in Ethiopia. Here is just a taste of our day…

The view from the clothesline after morning laundry.


I decided I need one of these back home! It would save electricity and I found it very peaceful to be outside hanging all that laundry. Of course, when we are a family of 8, I will need a very loooong clothesline!

We moved into the guest house. This is our cook Waday and our maid Meheret.


We ate a wonderful dinner together. Our cook tried to make a traditional American meal for our family. So thoughtful of her! We had spaghetti and garlic bread with a side of french fries. Delicious!


We have a guard for the guest house. He is constantly avaiable to us. He watches our home and locks up our gate anytime we are coming or going. He and his wife and child live directly across from our gate. Here is their home.


And here is a picture of the church we attended. We were so blessed to be a part of this body today!


We even got to be present for a baptism. Here is a short video.

Now we are heading to bed to prepare ourselves for our VERY EXCITING day tomorrow!
