Greetings! Pete and I miss seeing so many of you face to face! I’m sending you this note to ask for prayer!
Many of you know that I started a new job with a non-profit called Elevate Orphan! Elevate Orphan is a ministry serving both the Orphans and the Widows. It is entirely managed by Ethiopians for Ethiopians! We adopt children from the Government Orphanages in Addis Ababa into our single-family homes consisting of mothers and aunties. This summer I will be joining a team as we travel to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on a missions trip to meet and serve the children, mothers, aunties, and staff at Elevate Orphan. We plan to run a VBS for the younger children and engage the older children at the learning center with activities such as playing musical instruments, art, sewing, cooking, crafts, photography, sewing and soccer. This is a trip to encourage and live alongside those at Elevate Orphan!
My personal goal is that I get to connect with each mother, auntie, child, and the staff at Elevate Orphan. I’d love prayer that I will encourage each one in Ethiopia, as well as the team I will be going over with and not in any way offend. Those who know me best are saying amen!
Dates: July 16 –24, 2022
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Friends, as I’m asking for prayer, please let me know how I can pray for you!
