The two weeks I spent in Pokwo, Ethiopia with family and friends working with the amazing people in that village was life-changing. Our purpose is to build a building, but more than that we are there to be a light and a witness to people who need to know the Love of God. David, Leah and the gang are still there and I hope you will pray for them.
One of my favorite memories is simply getting to spend two weeks with my Aunt Rachel and seeing life from her perspective for a while. The day I left, she and I had lunch together and talked. It was refreshing. One other memory that stands out to me is the Sunday afternoon I spent with Dale and Okello walking along the river enjoying what God made. We walked from Pokwo up the river for about half an hour and I thoroughly enjoyed taking in a different part of God’s earth. Across the river on a sandy beach were three or four crocodiles sunning themselves with their mouths open wide. They didn’t look intimidating from across the river but I’m sure I would have had different thoughts if I were closer!
