This summer, I have been blessed with the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, July16 -24, 2022! While there, I will be working with the organization Elevate Orphan to help plan a VBS for the younger children and engage the older children with activities at the learning center, which include playing musical instruments, art, sewing, cooking, crafts, photography, and soccer. This is a trip to live alongside those at Elevate Orphan, as well as encourage and build relationships with the children, mothers, and aunties. The cost of the trip is $2,500. I am paying $500 for my trip and am willing to put in more, but first thought to ask if you would like to participate in this opportunity the Lord has given to share His word and be a light! I’d also appreciate your prayers for everything to run smoothly, including safe travels, everyone being up to date on vaccines, no last-minute COVID-19 cases, and that through Christ, we can glorify God and show his love to the people of Ethiopia!
