I don't like this part of the movie...
Life outside the school gates is a completely different world. "Suks" or small shops line the road along with small restaurants, "men's beauty" salons, and much to my delight there's a café every few hundred feet! There's also an open market where - if I look hard enough - I'm sure I'll find some Real Madrid shirts to buy our kids. We found out where the local ATM is, where to buy bread (the "Nice Bakery"), popcorn kernels, and sugar.
As I think of those 12 pieces of luggage we brought over with us, I'm reminded of the saying that it's not about what you bring but what you leave behind. Pray for us as we get stuck in to life here in Addis that when the time eventually comes to go, we'll have left something of eternal significance here in the relationships formed, and in the lives touched.
Thanks for being a part of our story.
