Let’s move on!

Wrapping up, closing, saying goodbye and handing over… it’s time to move on! Packing a suitcase is becoming more and more routine and efficient. We had a good time here and learned so much from working at Maranatha, the surrounding projects/companies, and from the people we met here. From the people who live here and from the guests who passed by in the guesthouse. We saw and tasted a lot of Ethiopian culture. From the njeera food to the endless coffee ceremonies (and coffee wasn’t our favorite ;))

We have seen Ethiopia, which increasingly wants to ‘Westernize’. Where people dream of a ‘good’ life and to emigrate to America when the opportunity arises. From cola and popcorn to extravagant weddings; all the luxuries they try to aspire to. Unfortunately, this ‘dream’ has only become reality for a small percentage of Ethiopians and for most Ethiopians, living still means surviving far too often.

We have seen how much influence Genesis farm and other companies set up here (with the same goal of combating spiritual and natural poverty) have on the entire environment. It is wonderful to see that so many people have found work as a result and that many new developments and initiatives have emerged as a result. The standard of living has improved enormously for many people in the area. Yes, in this way we can certainly do something about the poverty that exists!

‘Final internship’

Next Sunday we leave for Uganda. On to our 3rd and final ‘internship’. With a wonderfully short flight of only 2 hours, we hope to land at Entebbe airport in the early afternoon. We’re really looking forward to it! Curious how we will experience Uganda again after we were there a year and a half ago. We are also very curious what the children’s village under construction (which was still an orphanage during our visit 1.5 years ago) looks like, but above all we are looking forward to meeting Joseph and his kids again.

As soon as we have settled in Uganda, we will leave a message about our experiences and write more about our work as soon as possible. But for now we are going to enjoy the country and the Dutch conviviality…
