Ethiopia: Day One

20111105-203538.jpg

So it was day 1 here in Ethiopia. And pretty intense. Things I’ve seen, in no particular order, that I’m processing:

– mothers with infants laying on muddy streets amidst traffic, livestock and people

– 12 year olds that are battling sexual predation

– donkeys walking the streets

And just a whole world that I feel completely ill-equipped to process. I was interviewing a team member today for video and she just totally broke down with broken heartedness for what we saw today.

Our team is tired, emotionally worn. Some of its jetlag, some of it is reality. Pray for us.

Tomorrow we fly to Mekele and start our work in the field.
