ETHIOPIANCRAIGS ONE YEAR UPDATE
We have three things to tell you…
1. The girls have adjusted to life in the US (see pics below).
Lauren, Anna, and Sarah had great years at their schools. It was not without tears from time to time, as they continue to miss close friendships in Ethiopia, but God’s protective hand has been on their hearts. Emily’s job has been fantastic and Jason’s year at seminary was a gift from God.
2. PLEASE PRAY. Jason is returning to Ethiopia tomorrow.
He will teach a brand new modular class at Evangelical Theological College called “Leadership Development in Youth Ministry.” He will be there for two and a half weeks reconnecting with students and eating injera b’wat. The girls are super annoyed that they cannot come on this trip. Please pray for meaningful conversations and safe traveling.
3. Christmas in Ethiopia!
We are currently forming a short-term team to join us in Ethiopia over Christmas break. We will function as support staff for SIM’s Spiritual Life Conference, a gathering of more than 200 mission staff from all over Ethiopia. We will run a VBS style program for elementary age kids—Ethiopians, Americans, Aussies, Koreans, and variety of Europeans. The five-day conference will be held about two hours south of Addis Ababa at an old government hotel in the countryside. Let us know if you are interested!
