Backpack giveaway

I promised one of my 10 year olds that he could pick the winner of the backpack giveaway, then sent him to bed before asking him his pick. Sorry! I’ll announce the winner in the morning!

  3. Dear Mary,

    I am writing to ask if you might share with me a few of your stories about Ethiopia, or what you know of Ethiopia. I am a forty three year old divorce who will graduate in December and plan on going to Ethiopia to teach. I have been in contact with the El Bethel Academy in Addis Ababa, and they are ready for me, but still, I have never been away from the United States, and I am hesitant.

    I’m looking forward to going, but I suppose want a little assurance from others who know of Ethiopia.

    Many thanks,

    Regina Butler

  4. Dear Mary,

    I was browsing the net and found your writings, and noticed your mother is in Etiopia. And so, I decided to write to you. My name is Regina. I am a forty three year old divorce who will graduate in December and plan on going to Ethiopia (Addis Ababa) to teach. I’d like to know what it is like in Ethiopia and know how your mother is getting along in the country.

    I have never been away form the United States, and am hesitant, but so looking forward to the journey and experience.

    When I was married I had day care for five years and loved every moment of it. I was a stay at home mom while my children were growing up. This supplemented my husbands income and helped me to stay with my children.

    I believe I will enjoy teaching in Ethiopia and the experience will give me a fresh and new perspective on life.

    Best,

    Regina Butler
