Merry Ethiopian Christmas

God blessed us yesterday—on Ethiopia’s Christmas Day—with a surprise visit from Hanna Teshome, founder of Hanna Orphans’ Home in Ethiopia! Hanna is an amazing lady who felt God’s call at age 14 to establish an orphanage for children whose parents had died of AIDS. She now cares for over 200 orphans in group homes—mostly in the capital city of Addis Ababa—five of which Harmony Outreach supports! John calls Hanna the EMT—Ethiopia’s Mother Teresa! It was a special privilege for Linda to meet Hanna as an airline delay prevented such a meeting last February when Linda flew to Ethiopia. God’s family is so diverse, but what a privilege it is to meet saints such as Hanna and mutually experience the sweet bond we share in Jesus.
