Colliding Worlds


Recently the girls got the chance to hang out with Sami, a young friend of ours (and friend of a LOT of folks who have done any visiting or serving in Ethiopia) from Addis Ababa. What a blessing.

They've hung out, had breakfast and most recently went swimming.

We asked him to talk to Mebrate in Amharic for us. Her response?

"What ees dat? I don't know what he is saying?"
Sigh. We don't know enough of the language to keep her going. All I can help her say is "Pee," "car" and "thank you." Not all that helpful.

I love when our world here in the states collides with the world we love in Ethiopia. It's just cool.
