Going to an international church certainly has its benefits.
Today I had the privilege to make new friends with some guys from Guinea-Bissau. (if you are unsure where this is, it is in West Africa).
I went with my friend and colleague Elise, and another friend Dagim. These five guys are in Ethiopia to attend Theological College, and (like me) are passionate about their home country. Three of them are finishing after this year and will be heading back to Guinea-Bissau to become pastors, or to teach theology to others.
Elise, Dagim and I even got to try a special fruit juice made from fruit only found in Guinea-Bissau! Very exciting, and actually quite delicious.
For many years I have wanted to go to every African country – this just makes me more excited for this particular one!!
