Master Tree Growers

Hey! Hey! I am back!  I found another temporary solution for photos, hoping this one can last a bit longer. :)

We have been back for a month and in a completely, non-complaining way, it feels like we time traveled because we haven’t been in the USA for at least a year. It would be an understatement to say we’ve been on the go, but it has all been good and worthwhile busy!

Right now, our family is south of Addis Ababa for some meetings (Yes, we live in the North, long story :)). I had some time to slip away today and organize my thoughts a bit. 

Master Tree Growers training was amazing. I mentioned it in a previous post, but God blessed it in mighty ways which I cannot detail here but thank you for all your prayers.

All the trainees and the trainers (Kinfe from Mekele, Ethiopia, Joy from Uganda, John from Australia and Tafera from the 5 F’s project). Jon and Mark were participants.

All attendees received a hat and they were worn with much pride.

Mark, at their new house (the mud house in the background, almost dry enough to move in) explaining what plants they have put on the land and why.
