Around The World

Guesthouse life isn’t the easiest to live, but when we are in Addis, our guesthouse has surprisingly, started feeling a bit like a second home, especially to the girls. 

One of my favorite parts is crossing paths and sharing meals with people from all over the world. Last time I was in Addis Ababa, there was a sweet family who was very quiet and cooked their own meals. They had a new little baby and one night, we were all in the main living area (each hoping for wifi) and I got to hear about the work they are involved with in the Middle East.

As I listened to my Ethiopian brother and sister share about how God is moving, tears were flowing. God is so big and his family is so beautiful.

Because the internet is the internet, I cannot expound, but wow.

So easily, I despair over the state of the world, but I was so blessed by this man and his family and hope this can be encouragement in your day.
