As many of you already know, I have been given the awesome opportunity to join the Ethiopian Orphan Ministry at Christ Church for a mission trip to Ethiopia this March 2013! The goal of this trip is to demonstrate the hope of Christ to women and children who are in need in Ethiopia. While on the trip, we will:

1. volunteer at several Christian, mission-focused organizations that provide assistance to Ethiopian women and children

2. deliver tubs full of vital supplies to these organizations, local orphanages and others in need

3. provide training and support for teachers at the Nehemiah Center - one of the only schools for Autistic children in Ethiopia

A few of the organizations we support include Embracing Hope Ethiopia, Bring Love In, Hope Enterprise, Entonto Mountain and No Ordinary Love. You can visit some of their websites at:

I am most excited about the newest addition to this year’s mission trip. We are doubling our team size in order to send a group of Autism teachers and experts to one of the only Autism schools in Ethiopia—the Nehemiah Center. Our team has already witnessed God's hand in this project! When we originally began planning this new adventure, only two of us were interested in helping at the Center and none of us had any professional autism experience. We sought help from the local Autism Speaks branch with no luck. God had other plans, as he often does. It all started earlier this year when a local group borrowed our church building to hold a camp for kids with Autism—the local Center for Autism. When we finally caught up with the lead teacher of this group and presented our plans to her, she immediately agreed to join us AND she recruited 3 other teachers to join her. Then, she contacted her friend and colleague in New York who “just happened to be” an expert in international education for autism and convinced her to join us too! Now because of this one woman’s faithfulness to God’s calling, we have an entire team of teachers excited about sharing their knowledge and experience with the teachers in Ethiopia. Just imagine all the lives that will be touched! Nothing just “happens,” and God can work bigger miracles than we can even ask for. So you can see, we haven’t even left the ground for Ethiopia and God is already at work.

In order to participate in this exciting trip, I need your financial support as well as your prayers. The entire trip will cost $1945. This experience is one I have often dreamed about, and I can’t wait to help and learn from the people I meet there. If you can help support me on this trip, please consider giving financial donation of any amount before January 18th (right around the corner). Any extra money raised (over the amount needed for travel) will be used purchase and ship supplies, or to fund the Ethiopian Orphan Ministry at Christ Church.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this and considering the opportunity to join me in this mission opportunity!
