MAI Staff Training and Preparation for President Abadula
Apr. 7th, 2010
I awoke very refreshed this morning although I was sore from our work yesterday. The birds were singing and a misty fog covered the farm. As the sun rose, the mist burned off leaving the farm very beautiful.

Abera and I drove back to Shashamene and I spent the afternoon catching up on email and preparing presentations for President Abadula, the President of the Oromia Region, tomorrow. He is going to Kokosa for a big celebration and will be stopping at the farm to see what we have been doing.
I met with Mohammad, President Abadula’s aide, this evening to discuss our meeting. I was surprised to find out that there will be about 30 people there. We will not be able to do a presentation inside with the computer so we will do it outside on the new benches that Abera had constructed.
Erika and I worked out insurance and a few other things on Skype. It is hard being away from home but at least we can communicate.
