Another Day in Ethiopia 2014

Delivery of more than 200 quilts takes more than a day…especially when each one is delivered with a hug.

We went to schools to meet some of the children.  They were playful, smiling, and fun to watch.  They sang to us and joined us in singing and dancing to the Hokey Pokey.

                  It is wonderful to know that so many people take the time to make beautiful quilts to give warmth to these children.  Yes, it does get cold in Ethiopia.  It rains a great deal and the air is damp and chilly at times.  At night it is so nice to cuddle up in a quilt made with love.

 

The labels on the quilts indicate who made the quilt and have a space to write the child’s name.  These kids get to keep the quilt even when they are old enough to leave the orphanages.

The smiles are contagious and we are so blessed to hand out the quilts each day of our visit.
