Friend of the Fatherless

 In a few short weeks (March 13-21st), we will be traveling with an amazing group of women to volunteer in orphanages in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We have been blessed with the opportunity to bring the Lord's work to such a beautiful yet devastated country. In preparation for our trip, we ask for a few things from you. First and foremost, we need your prayers. We will be leading a group of 6 women to the capitol of Ethiopia, and for many this is their first international missions trip. I specifically ask for prayer for peace, travel favor and mercies, health, and strength to minister to the women and children we will encounter. Pray God will work through us to do what He needs us to accomplish while we are there. We want to honor Him by being the hands and feet of Jesus…this obviously cannot happen without prayers from all of you.

Secondly, financial support. The orphanages that we will visit are in dire need of supplies and personal hygiene items. However to transport these items to Ethiopia, it would be necessary for us to physically take them with us on the plane. It costs approximately $250/tote to do this. We would need to take anywhere from 15-20 totes full of necessary items for the children, if not more. This would simply not be cost efficient, therefore we have decided to collect monies instead of items and make purchases for the orphanages once we arrive in Ethiopia.
