This morning, we met again for breakfast, after which Mitch led devotions. We then gathered in the parking lot to wait for the 2 vans that would transport us to Samre for sponsorship distribution day.
As we headed out of town, there were people and animals everywhere. The driver explained that today was market day.
When we arrived in Samre, the townspeople gathered around us and stared. We decided that we now know how animals in the zoo feel!
Quite a few of the sponsored kids didn't show up, so Kiersten and Yohannes decided to come back to Samre on Tuesday so they could have another distribution day. Then we climbed back into the vans to begin the very bumpy ride back to Mekele. We had not eaten lunch, so we snacked on the way back.
When we arrived back to Mekele, I was tired and dizzy from the long bumpy ride. I realized that I had not had much water all day. I rested and showered, and then we visited the Hannah's Hope here in town. We were able to give Tadesse a tub of donations for HH.
