Greetings from the USA,
From March 3-12, I traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to participate in the MANI Consultation, a gathering of about 700 African national mission leaders and guests from around the world. Our gathering was hosted at the prestigious African Union building, where African political leaders from the whole continent gather to discuss common concerns. The Nelson Mandela hall is modeled after the UN General Assembly hall. It was the first time I had traveled outside of the country since I was in High School, when I barely made it over the border to Monterrey, Mexico.
