The Moderator has no clothes …. Photos to follow!

August 2nd, 2009

Seriously, my luggage did not travel with me to Addis Ababa and I have only what clothes I am currently wearing. This is a big frustration but as well as clothes I am missing my good Bible and all sermon notes. So I had to preach at church this morning without notes and with Patricia’s Bible. I think it went OK. It was wonderful to worship with an African congregation drawn from a low income area of the city. They were so warm and welcoming, and so enthusiastic in everything.

I am also without phone charger which will make keeping in touch a bit difficult.

Maybe the Lord is teaching me an important lesson about making do with less and coping with a bit of personal discomfort. This is proving to be a very interesting and challenging trip.

To be continued….

UPDATE :  My missing baggage has now been recovered!
