We all remember those days of childhood when our hunger was insatiable. For any growing child, meal times are their favorite time of day. But for some children in Ethiopia, receiving a full meal every day is a luxury.
Through the years, Ethiopia has been ravaged by war, drought, famine, and poverty. Only adding to this tragedy is the AIDS epidemic; high risk of infectious disease, and low education rates. Ethiopia has the 8th highest number of AIDS related deaths in the world. These heart-wrenching conditions have contributed to more than 4 million children orphaned.
This is a land desperate for a touch from Jesus. As our team travels to Bale Goba, Ethiopia, we are stretching ourselves to be His hands and feet like never before. We know these problems will not go away over night, or even on our 10 day trip. However, we press on nonetheless and push ourselves to serve and sacrifice like Jesus, because one child helped, is one more child with a new hope.
This June, our goal is to bless 130 children with a months supply of food, toys, school supplies, and one outfit. These gifts will be given out to children as our team is saturating their city with the Gospel.
We ask you to join us in giving. We challenge you to sacrifice so that these children may know the love of Jesus like never before. Just $15 will sponsor a child, and gets us closer to our goal.
Thank you for joining us in this project. By coming together, we can be a part of something that is so much bigger than ourselves. These seeds of love will impact a whole generation in Ethiopia.
