Day #1 in Ethiopia
The flight to Ethiopia went very smoothly. Although 12 hours is a long time to sit in a plane we were very thankful that it wasn't the usual 17 hours that it previously took to get here. We spent our first day getting unpacked and connecting with our in country support staff. Our driver Alizar was right on time to pick us up from the airport and it took us about 15 minutes to get to the Ethiopian Guest House where we will be staying. Our friend and Children's Hopechest coordinator, Fikre, met us at the guest house and after lunch and a coffee ceremony we headed over to Greenlight Ministry to scope out our first project. In the morning we will go back to Greenlight and work on building a concrete floor for the new kitchen that is being built at Greenlight. We will attend Church there at 10 AM first and then we will get to work. After we are finished with the concrete floor we will start painting all of the metal structures that are being used to construct the kitchen. Everyone is doing great! Thank you for all for the prayers and support.
