We wanted to take a moment today to reach out and say hello from Bring Love In. With all the summer madness we haven’t been in touch in a while, and we want you to know that you matter to us.
First off we just have to give a shout out to our staff on the ground, they are doing an amazing job, and this past month they reached a big milestone. In Ethiopia organizations such as ours are required to re-register with the government every three years that includes all sorts of checks and interviews, analysis of our impact and there are many issues can come up. Not only did Bring Love In pass but we got not one negative mark on our report! Praise God for this! Our staff really worked hard to make this happen, and it is a glowing example of their dedication to the kids.
Our 9 homes are all buzzing each day with 57 kids! Our moms are doing fantastic and we could not be more blessed to see big smiles on the kids faces. It is a blessing every time we get to visit for us to see such a wonderful happy place for these kids to grow up in and the incredible progress each child has made in their lives. God is at work here are we are proud to be a small part of it.
Its pretty neat to be here today in Ethiopia and to see Air Force One parked at the airport. Obama’s visit here has brought a spotlight onto this beautiful country right now, and a sense of pride to the people here. This is truly a wonderful place where lots of progress is being made on all fronts. We are thankful to get a front row seat here at such an exciting time in the history of Ethiopia.
We could do none of what Bring Love In does for our widows and orphans without you and your support, and so we wanted to reach out and say thank you for your generosity, your giving makes this all possible.
Lastly, we wanted to ask if you are giving currently if you might consider adding 10% to your giving to help us with increased costs. As Ethiopia rises out of poverty so too have costs of daily life risen, while this is a good thing for the country as a whole, and we are blown away by the positive changes we are seeing in this country compared to 6 years ago when we first moved to Ethiopia, it does affect our bottom line.
If you are interested in starting a new monthly gift or to adding to your existing giving please let us know, we would be so thankful! In a few short minutes you can setup a tax deductible donation by Clicking Here.
