Sorry to say I have already aired this topic in another place with some interesting responses.
Late on Easter Sunday if God wills I shall fly to Ethiopia for 10 days. The family of a little girl I used to teach will meet me and direct me to the historical and religious sites there.
I am a rash person, prone to irrational acts. This act is fairly irrational. I am Russian Orthodox but have not yet visited the religious places in Russia so why am I going to Ethiopia? I am interested in the country but I feel somewhat guilty that that will be the first Orthodox country (other than Greece and Cyprus) that I ever visited.
Explanations, prayers and advise please!
