Beauty Out of Ashes

CANADA - Have you ever been in a room with so much smoke that you could feel it in your lungs? This past week, I went to Williams Lake, BC, Canada where the smoke-filled air irritated lungs and formed such a thick fog outside that flights in and out had to be canceled. Why was there so much smoke?

A Life Without Easter?

Yesterday I realized that I will not have Easter this year. I am currently in Ethiopia, and they are on the Orthodox calendar, which places Easter one week later than the one in North America, which is on April 1st. Since our flight plans involve heading home on Saturday, April 7th, I will experience Good Friday with Ethiopian Christians but will be on a series of flights on their Easter, April 8th.
