Dear Elevate Orphan Family,
We want to thank you for your prayers and generous support! Thank you for loving the children and widows and trusting us to steward the ministry God has assigned us at Elevate Orphan.
This past May was busy for the students finishing school, taking tests, and six of them preparing to graduate from high school! In addition, we have two young ladies preparing to graduate from university. Meklit will be graduating with a degree in chemical engineering, and Enguday is finishing her degree in civil engineering. Please join us in praying for these two young ladies that the Lord will help them through their last classes and direct their steps to where He wants them to take jobs. Also, there was a celebration for Degefa’s birthday as he turned seven years old! A soccer coach came on campus to work with the kids as well!
In May we had training for the mothers and aunties and the staff! The training topics were on skills to communicate with teenagers, parenting, solving problems, stress management, and emotional intelligence. We are so thankful for this time; we pray the moms, aunties, and staff are encouraged and equipped to keep on and not grow weary in doing good!
I’m happy to announce that we have a team of 19 going over to Addis Ababa to visit and serve the children, mothers, aunties, and staff at Elevate Orphan and be mutually encouraged by them! We would love you to join us in prayer for our preparations, good health, servants’ hearts, and safety in our travels. We leave July 16 and get home July 24!
I want to leave you with this last request … pray for these children. Pray for their healing, growth, and eventual understanding and acceptance of Christ’s eternal gift to us. Their salvation is the ultimate goal. So pray fervently and often – God be glorified!
In His Grip,
Dr. Reuben Gobezie
