August 2009

My $10.00 per night room in Busia. I got the Chairman's Suite.

Life in Busia, Kenya.

This young man built his own mud house for no cost and said to me, "I could come to Canada and show people how to build a mud house."

Our congenial hosts in Busia.

We drove over the Equator in Kenya which was marked by this structure.

August 2009

To Kenya with Kristy & Jacob (my daughter & grandson) in the first picture. The second picture is of the Masai natives who live in the wide open spaces and herd their cattle from range to range.

Wild animals in the 50 square mile reserve.


August 2009

Both food & coffee (their specialty) were awesome. The Ethiopian coffee ceremony takes about 40 minutes from roasting the green beans, crushing them and brewing the coffee over hot coals.

August is a winter month in Ethiopia, so the flowers were in full bloom, the grass was green and the weather was mild.
Lisa, Amanda, Laura, Kristy, Dana, Matt & Jacob in action.

Life in Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church believes the Ark of the Covenant was taken by Solomon's & the Queen of Sheba's son - to Ethiopia. They see themselves as guardians of Old Testament history. King Haile Selassie's seat is reserved for him in the church.

Abraham, Isaac (his son) & Jacob (my grandson).


August 2009

The main work that our team did was to put on a camp for the sponsored children. We gave them sports jerseys as gifts.
Pastor Samuel Kebede pastors our Ethiopian church, Cush Christian Fellowship, in Surrey.

He and his wife, Ruth, set up our visit and made sure all went smoothly.

Pastor Abraham (& his daugher) is the new appointed President of FGCE.

Our Kids Church painted yo-yo's to give as gifts to the church - the sponsored children were ecstatic - for some it was the first gift they'd ever received.

While the camp was on, I taught the pastors & leaders. They were such a ready & appreciative group.
