A few weeks ago I had the blessed opportunity to engage in an adventure pilgrimage to be at the location where the locals have a strong and long tradition that the Ark of the Covenant rests in a church in Axum, Ethiopia.

A few weeks ago I travelled to Ethiopia, Africa. These are some photos of the amazing rock-hewn churches in Lalibela, built during the fourth Century.
