I traveled to Ethiopia this week for the first time in life. I spent 17 hours of flying time wondering “what would I see?”, “would I be able to eat”, “could I handle the emotions of seeing all of the poverty”, “how would I handle seeing my family’s sponsor child @ CHE?” On several occasions, I would just start crying on the plane. The anticipation and uncertainty of  how I would handle these things was too much for me at times.
