Happy Mother’s Day from Ethiopia
Mother’s are not good…they are great, amazing, incredible, and every other word that would describe the most precious thing in the world. Here in Ethiopia we have the privilege to work with some of the most courageous mothers in the world. Women like Meselu, who at just 25, was forced to move out on the street with her son. To provide for her son she started working in prostitution. She is now working with us, has a good job, and recently showed me her sons report card…2nd in his class of almost 50 children. I wish we could show you the pride on her face and tears in her eyes when she showed us his report card. This is just one of countless stories on what it means to be a mother here in Ethiopia, their courage is humbling and we are so thankful each one of them.
Here is a quick clip of a few of these women describing what it means to them to be a mother. So from all the women here in Ethiopia to my wife, mom, and friends back home, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
