Goodbyes – February 28

A day of goodbyes. Not an easy task when your heart has been touched, your eyes have seen so much, and your love has expanded. Today we said goodbye to our partner church. They had gifts for each of us, gifts for our church, a meal prepared for us by their own workers, prayers and words of encouragement. What a great time with them as we conveyed our love and appreciation for them and for what God has done in this last week.

Today we left Debre Zeit and headed to Addis Ababa. Our evening was spent at a cultural restaurant filled with cultural music and dancing and food. We got to spend the evening with Getu – our Leadership Development Program (LDP) student who is sponsored by our church. Getu is finishing his second year in college, and has another 3 years to go. He is such a neat guy and is growing in his love for the Lord as he grows into a man. Having this opportunity to go to university will greatly enable him to become a leader in his community, one who loves the Lord, and has shown great spiritual leadership in the Compassion program throughout the years.
