Our third day in Adama was full of fun. Of course, we did some work, going over financials and doing some planning with Faya Orphanage, delivering packages and taking pictures of House 2 House kids, but we also packed in some fun as well.
Meseret and Sintayehu’s younger sister, who looks remarkably like my younger sister! is a fabulous cook withher own restaurant. We had been treated to amazing door wat and shiro the day before, and this day she came over to give Tawnya and I shiro lessons. No wonder my shiro always turned out so powdery and yucky.. I was doing it all wrong! The result.. Delicious! And the kids ate our shiro for a morning snack.
My mother Rita, who does the updates for the community kids, interviewed Sintayehu for hours to get all the info on the children who are now in the orphanage, as well as the kids in the House 2 House program. So our next set of updates will be more comprehensive…
Later that afternoon, we were off to Addis for more meetings… And shopping!
