In 2 weeks, we will be traveling to Ethiopia. Among other things, we will be working on Metekle school, the project for which we have been fundraising the past year and a half. There are still lots of things that need to come together before then, and we need your help with the following items:
1. Will you please pray for our team as we prepare to leave? Pray that we can be the hands and feet of Jesus to the poor and hurting, and that all that we do there can be a glory to Him. Please pray for our health and safety, and for the children we leave at home. I know that we will experience some very emotional moments on this trip, and that we may be sadly lacking in sleep (especially since we are taking a 6-month old baby along), but I'm trusting God to see us through! Thanks!
2. We are still about $4,250 shy of the $120,000 total amount needed to finish the school project. If you feel moved to do so, please donate at http://allgodschildren.org/get-involved/projects-that-need-you/metekle-primary-school/ or pass this along to someone that may be interested. No amount is too small, and we appreciate your support and generosity so much! Many children, both now and in the future, will be blessed to receive an education because of your willing heart. Thanks again, friends!
