About Ethiopia… Not Yet

This Sunday, August 1, Danny (from “learning…“) and I plan to report back to our church about our trip to Ethiopia. If you’re in the area and are interested in hearing our presentation, you are welcome to come. We will start around 10:30 a.m. and you can find directions to our meeting place on our church’s website. If you come, please bring some food to share (pot luck) and join us for lunch afterward.

I’m still processing and planning that presentation, so I will not post anything here until after Sunday (well, except for the picture for this post). My post Monday morning will be called “We were your apostles,” and explains our understanding of our role and our responsibilities to the church that sent us and the church in Alaba, Ethiopia.

There is so much to think about and learn from and share. I hope you enjoy the stories and lessons as much as I will enjoy reliving them.

(By the way, Danny has posted a picture and a story on his blog.)

    Alan, welcome back! Trips like these are whirlwind and leave that analogous “white line fever” from the other culture. I especially enjoy pictures.

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, I’ll post plenty of pictures and even a few videos. It’s difficult to decide how to describe my experiences in Ethiopia…

    I spent a week in Haiti back in the 90’s. The bigger culture shock came when back in Miami awaiting my flight home the next day.
