Day 6 – Goodbye Uganda, Hello Ethiopia

We started our day early after a late night packing our things. We had a light breakfast at 7:30am and finished packing and putting everything in the back of the truck.
At about 9:30 we started teaching Sunday School. We split into groups and Veet, Kari Hamilton and I taught the Jr High aged kids. We started with the Name Game, and the kids loved it. We started our lesson on the Fruits of the Spirit and handed out Jolly Rancher candies for them to eat while we taught. We found out they already knew about the Fruits of the Spirit and had the entire verse with the reference memorized!! Oh well!
At 10:30 we ate a quick brunch then said our goodbyes to our new friends. We were on the road by 11:00 for the 3 hour ride to Entebbe Airport.
By the time we reached Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, it was late and we didn’t get to bed until after midnight.
The Guest House where we are staying is so nice!! We are still staying bunk style with three to a room and one bathroom for every 9 people, but at least we have consistent hot water and don’t have to worry about enormous beetles running through your shower!!
So happy to be in Ethiopia! But, really would love a morning to sleep in!!!
