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…

At a concert, Dave Barnes inspired me to join MC. Volunteering & hearing stories brought a deeper need to be involved & serve others. Going to Ethiopia w. MC & seeing the difference just $7 can make in the lives of others changed my life.  I learned that: I truly need Africa more than Africa needs me!

I joined Mocha Club because, going to school in Nashville, you see how passionately the musicians who represent the organization live out their faith and commitment to MC. My dear friend brought me along to volunteer at a Matt Wertz concert and I was hooked!
