Africa: Ethiopia Introductions

Yesterday, 23 January 2014, President Harrison arrived in Ethiopia for his first visit there. After a several hour travel delay in Nairobi and an aborted landing attempt, we safely arrived in Addis Ababa. We met with the leaders from the Mekane Yesus Seminary and the EECMY. Pictured above: President Wakseyoum gives President Harrison a copy of the seminary's history.

Dr. Belay, President of MYS gave a presentation on the eecmy and the seminary.

We saw a presentation on the history of the seminary and it's future plans.

President Harrison tried his hand at a traditional Ethiopian instrument.

Today we are scheduled to visit with seminary faculty and students.
