A group of guys representing the University of Kentucky football team, along with the assistant athletic director, their trainer and a few athletes from other sports are in Ethiopia getting a firsthand look at life in a country a world apart from their own.
The daily existence these folks experience is hard to fathom for all of us who live in wealth and plenty but the team has been quietly taking it all in as they interact with and love on many of Ethiopia’s poorest.
And there has been lots of fun too!
For more perspective on this team, be sure to read Brett Johnson’s blog. Brett went to Ethiopia last year with the UK mixed sports team and is in Ethiopia for an extended trip this summer, serving in a variety of mission opportunities.
