Ridiculous

with 3 comments

The NCC trip of 18 plus 3 members of a video team has gone or is on their way. All I can say is that this trip, week was ridiculously awesome.

Our week was non stop, everything came together perfectly, there was major bonds formed, there was constant celebration, there was extreme fun and joy, and even some adventure.

Saturday(first day in Addis)- Team visited the mountain where our partner outreach program, Beze Entoto outreach, does their ministry. They led kids programs, visited beneficiary homes and had a blast.

Sunday- We celebrated boys graduation in front of Beza, then had a party with amazingly good lamb meat.

Monday-Wed morning- We had a ridiculous amount of fun playing organized games, swimming, forming bonds, playing volley ball and much more during our trip out of Addis.

Wednesday-returned to Addis, were welcomed by Beza, shopped, went to orphanage

Thursday-Team shopped, saw city, went to a museum, and handed out meals to over 100 homeless.

Friday- Team visited largest open air market in Africa, then went to Youth Impact and saw Ermias’s work, then ate a meal cooked by our two boys Girum and Mickie

Saturday-This was the cherry on top. AN AMAZING DAY! We hiked to a water fall, then the top of Entoto mountain. 6 hours of hiking, that involved some rain, cold swimming, and the high light mud slide. We then had closing ceremonies to close out the week and the team just left.

This was the best mission trip ever, let me just be real. It could not have gone any better. Everyone on each side experienced the favor of God and were blessed in many tangible ways. Can’t wait to see the seeds sown from this trip.
Wish I could go on, but another blog soon with photos. Thank you to NCC!!!!

PS: This doesn’t even include a report about the hard working video team that got amazing footage!! Amazing story lines. God is working big time!

  2. So glad you were blessed with such exciting, busy times. Impacting lives by seeing the work you have been doing is great. NCC provides inspiration to so many and are so dedicated to missions. EVERYONE should make an effort at some time to be part of a team to encourage a missionary – like you, son. Dad
