Spiritual Boost at the Meganagna Branch
This morning after taking half an hour getting set up, I was finally able to talk to my family on Skype. I had to sit out on the balcony, serenaded by the chanting from the Orthodox Church, to get good reception. I used headphones to eliminate the feedback, which quieted the choppy half-sentence conversations! I had a wonderful talk with Erika that really boosted my spirits.
Danny drove us to church at the Addis Megenagna
The first group of MAI employees headed for the Alyssa farm yesterday, which only leaves a few of us here in Addis. I spent the afternoon catching up on my journal. I was five days behind, but not anymore!
(note from Erika: Now *I'm* the one who's behind!! Still trying to catch-up with publishing all of these great entries!)
I also read more of "The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World" by Cleon Skoussen, a book that my brother Larry gave me when we were visiting him last month. It is a great book and means even more to me as I read it while I'm here and as I compare and contrast Ethiopia with the U.S.
