Arrival in Addis Ababa

Our team arrived safely in Addis this morning with no glitches with baggage claim or visas.
In Ethiopian time it was evening and since only Rachael was able to manage some sleep on the plane, they went to their hotel to hopefully sleep soundly.

Soon they will be awakened to the sound of the Mosque intercom reciting morning prayers. While the population of Ethiopia is only about 32% Muslim and 61% Christian/Orthodox Christian, the morning prayers still dominate the sound in Addis.

They will awaken to this, if the sound of huge flying mosquitoes don't wake them first! (Matt reported big mosquitoes). Fortunately, malaria carrying mosquitoes don't live in the higher elevations of Addis (can't say the same about Zeway which is near the Rift Valley).

In a few hours the team will be on their way to Zeway. Pray for them as you go to bed and when you awake in the morning!

I will make sure to have the "safari" pray for them while they are away.
