is a landlocked country located in the Horn of Africa,
and officially known as the
Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia 

Ethiopia is where my church sponsored child, 
Yohanes lives..
I have been corresponding with Yohanes for
five years...
Each letter I receive totally gives me a new 
perspective on how fortunate we are to 
live in a country of really no needs or wants
of the simplest things...
Even though the US has been hit 
with a very bad economy...

We still have everything we need 
to make life comfortable and bearable...
Unlike so many 3rd world countries.

When I read a letter from Yohanes
describing how excited and thankful
he is to have a new pair of shoes
purchased with the money sent through
our ministry...
It makes me take a step back
and reflect just how much more we have than less...
Sometimes in life we forget those who do not have
what we all take for granted each and every day....

I often think how "my" life would be different
had I been born into a very poor country..

I know I would survive, hence
it would be all I knew....
However, knowing the difference between
how my life of no needs and wants
compared to those who do...
Makes one appreciate all God has provided..!!

Many Blessings to you, my friend!
