Our church family had a wonderful evening last night to learn more about our partnership with Ethiopia. More specifically, we heard about the upcoming trip to Ethiopia in June/July of this year. There are about 24 people, from 6 different churches, going to the Burji people in Southern Ethiopia. I had the joy of being with those precious people in November 2008. There are 4 team members from Cresset. Last night we talked about the specific area of ministry that the Lord has called us to. Our 4 will be involved in teaching men, women, youth, and children. I realize that covers all the bases! We shared with our church last night concerning what the Lord has impressed on our hearts to teach and encourage our brothers and sisters in the Burji church. I have a few pictures from last night to share with you.
I shared last night as well about teaching men. I showed pictures from my 2008 trip and closed with this one. It is a constant reminder to me of our calling to partner with our brothers and sisters in Christ. In this photo, I am seated with Worku. He was my translator in Ethiopia. Worku is a pastor of one of the Burji churches.
Our team departs June 30 and returns July 16. Please pray with us as we prepare and go!
