A lot has been happening here that has prevented me sitting down and writing. However, here are some recent events. 

Clean Hands, Kitfo, and Funerals

David, Coral and Sarah with Haile's son KalebDavid, Coral and Sarah Nicholson, visiting us from Spicer Street Church in St Albans, had never experienced anything like this. We were in Haile’s home on Ethiopian Easter Sunday for lunch. The TV was on, and the food was being laid out. Ethiopian food is eaten with your right (and only your right) hand, so handwashing before a meal is not only necessary, but is part of the whole cultural dining experience.
