blogABLE team Ethiopia 2013It’s so hard to summarize an experience like our #blogABLE trip into a neat, tidy blog post. It was an incredible, quick, packed, beautiful, exhausting, impacting week. We spent time with the courageous ladies going through rehabilitation at Women at Risk – we sang, we danced, we made guacamole. And we hugged necks and shared stories and drank coffee with the brave heroes at fashionABLE, who taught us how to work a loom and showed us that we don’t have to be defined by our past. We left with the reminder that while we may live an ocean apart, in different time zones and different circumstances, we are more connected than we could have ever imagined.

Below are some posts from the team, as they honestly process and reflect on what we experienced in Ethiopia on their own blogs.
Thanks again for following along with us…

The Mocha Club offers a unique way to support a few impactful projects within one organization!  After visiting Africa in 2006, I knew that I could sacrifice 3 or 4 trips to Starbucks a month if that meant helping others get the smallest things necessary in life like water, food and education.

I joined the Mocha Club after my first of 4 mission trips to southern Africa - a friend heard a pitch at a MC artist concert and sent me the info. I recruited a few others to join as well through missions and my church groups. I LOVE live music and being a part of what God is doing in Africa. Mocha Club is a perfect fit for me and my passions!
