This news about a disruption in the Sidama Zone in SPPN came out this week.
Our boys are from the Sidama Region. I have been in contact with a friend in Awassa. There are indeed things going on there.
Not long ago this would have been sad to me, but I do not believe it would not pull on my heart strings like it does today. Ryan and I spent a few days in Awassa last year June. We have friends in the Sidama Region. We have family in the Sidama Region.
While we were in the Sidama Region although we saw a rich heritage in the lives of so many amazing people we also saw so many people struggling with poverty and all that comes with that … disease, starvation, death, lack of medical care, lack of housing, lack of schooling …
Today, this news of something happening on the other side of the world moves me to tears. Breaks my heart for the people going through this disruption on top of the life that many already lead.
Please join me in praying for the people in the Sidama Zone.
