What an amazing day! Today we flew to our boys' birth city, and experienced a bit of their culture and some interesting things along the way! But let me back up and give the day's details.
Even though I took Nyquil last night, I didn't sleep very well. Throughout the night, a man up on the hill at the Orthodox church kept chanting a call to prayer. The poor L family woke up at 2 am and couldn't get back to sleep.
After getting ready, packing our luggage, eating breakfast with the L's and W's, checking email, and playing with the kids for a bit, we headed to the airport for our flight to Gambella, along with the L family and Mathewos, who works in-country for AGCI.
Wass was there to meet us, and he loaded all of our luggage onto the top of the van. We also met Yilma, the director of Brothers and Sisters Care Center, and Ochar, pastor of Bethel church. I had brought photos for each of these men from the mission group that was here in April/May, and they enjoyed looking through them. They especially loved the photos that I had collected and printed of all the Brothers and Sisters alumni kids.
