Gurage: Our Day in the Countryside

One of our days in Ethiopia, we were able to get outside of the capitol city and into a rural area called Gurage. The 5 hour drive, half on dirt roads, was absolutely incredible. Our destination was a small dirt floor church. While there, we met with several pastors/elders to share our hearts for the gospel to be proclaimed in the indigenous peoples of Ethiopia. It was an incredible time of open honest discussion. We learned so much from these humble men during our time with them.

 Absolutely beautiful views...the pictures really don't capture our Creator's majesty.

 This is a traditional Ethiopian home. We saw tons of these on our drive.
We stopped many times while a herd of animals took their time crossing the road.
Many times you saw the Ethiopian homes in clusters, set-up as a small community.
Here we are in the church where my dad is sharing with these local Christian leaders.
