Our student, Faskala (in the striped shirt), served for 7 years among the Hamer as a missionary. The little girl in the red shirt in the first photos was a Hamer girl who as an infant was left out to die because her teeth came in in the “wrong” order–she was cursed. Another person from the tribe found her and left her on Faskala’s doorstep. We got to meet his family on our way south.
These are the banana plantations that supply the majority of bananas for Ethiopia.
Pictures on the road. Tractors are quite rare.
Jeremy and one of our students, Ashagre. Ashagre served as an evangelist and then a pastor in a church in Jinka for 18 years. In the second picture are several of the elders from their church.
