Morning Coffee Guesthouse

For those of you traveling to Ethiopia in the future, and are looking for a guesthouse to stay at I strongly recommend Morning Coffee Guesthouse. It is affordable, clean, and has excellent service and food! More than that though, I would stay at this guesthouse because it supports a greater good. Birtukan is the owner of MCGH. She is an amazing woman who serves the Lord selflessly. She started Morning Coffee, not for herself but because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of ophans living in Ethiopia. Her ministry (Yezleminich...not sure how to spell that) includes caring for children who have parents but are unable to care for them due to poverty. They have an orphanage for those children, but at the same time they train the mothers to make livings for themselves (jewelry, roasting coffee beans, and selling spices) so that someday they can provide for their families. In addition to that, they have started a sponsorship program (kind of like compassion).
We absolutely enjoyed our time with Birtukan and her family. She taught us alot, and was an encouragement to us in our spiritual walk.
