Dear Dr Abiy,
It was with a mixture of sadness and eager anticipation of the future that Chris and I left your amazing homeland of Ethiopia on 17th June 2019. When we arrived at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa on 21st November 2013 we couldn’t have anticipated just how thrilling, challenging, life-changing and fun-filled the next six years would be. The people we would meet, friends we would make, work we would complete and things we would achieve are now the subject of constant reflection and gratitude to God. Happy as we are to have settled back into our home country with family, a multitude of grandchildren1, a new church and new challenges ahead, there is much about our term in Addis Ababa that we will always miss.
