“When I arrived in Ethiopia, whatever reservations I had about coming were quickly resolved through the Sisters’ generosity. They immediately took me in as part of their family. Day in and day out, the Sisters paved the way for me to use my gifts as a teacher to bring about change for the school and local community. Even though I was only there a month, I know in my heart that many of the people I met will stay with me forever.”
