Pray that the Afar people may know God's great love.
My name is Afar. I'm 8 years old and live in the country of Ethiopia.
My home is in a very hot and dry place called the Afar Triangle. Look for me on this map...
My Family's Ari
Every day after I get water and feed the animals I like to play with my friends. We play our flutes and dance together. At night my friends and I have fun scaring animals that try to come near us by throwing sticks and rocks at them.
Every year we make a trip to the sea to offer up an offering for the safety of our village. My family believes that many trees and spirits of the dead have sacred powers. So to appease these spirits we offer sacrifices every year. We wear things to protect us from the spirits as well.
