January 2013 mission trip

Ralph returned to Ethiopia for the first mission trip of  2013. Things are moving along quickly and there is lots of excitement in the community.

Here are a few details of what has been going on.

Volunteer home construction has started.  The plan will be for the Hopethiopia teams to live onsite and thus we have started construction of our volunteer home that will house 20 people.

The survey has been completed for the home and now the foundation work is being started

The brick building facility has now been completed and power has been hooked up to the site. Trainers will be onsite in 1 week to train our local crew how to fabricate the bricks.

Our Hopethiopia team is onsite to supervise the final hook up of 3 phase 380V power to our Hydraform brick building facility

We had a chance to visit President Girma’s new home development. It is built quite close to the hopethiopia office in Alemgena and we had a great time interacting with the local guard onsite
