Until Next Time...

Today was our last day in Ethiopia:( Bittersweet as we wait to board our 10:45pm flight to make the 33 hour trip back to Midland. We ventured out this morning to visit the Alert hospital(ALL AFRICA LEPROSY TUBERCULOSIS REHABILITATION RESEARCH TRAINING CENTER) that sits near the trash dump in the Korah community. This hospital was established by German's to help train medical proffesionals & offer those affected with leprosy receive life saving medical care. It has since began caring for those with TB & HIV/AIDS as well. We enjoyed watching many of them weaving, sewing, crocheting and creating beautiful crafts. We were able to visit their gift shop and we were blessed by all the beautiful things that these patient had made. Next we traveled to the Fistual hospital where we ended up not being able to have a tour, but the grounds were blooming with beautiful flowers. You can watch a great documentary on this hospital called "Walk To Beautiful." We stopped to buy some Ethiopian coffee and headed back to the guest house to  pack, shower and head to the airport. Our hearts & minds are FULL, and we pray that as we return home we will continue to see what God really wanted us to get out of this trip. It is amazing that just when you think you are going to help and love on people, you end up really being the one that get's an Extreme Heart Make-over!

Until Next Time... We Love you Ethiopia!

Thank You for touching the lives of our girls:)
