I have the opportunity to return to Ethiopia next month with Bethany Christian Services. I’m going to explore ways Watermark can partner with an Ethiopian church to begin a foster care program for orphans. I’ll also be looking into other ways we can serve widows and orphans in this remarkable, but poverty stricken area.
My wife, Vicki, and I sponsor a child through an amazing ministry named, “Yezelalem Minch.” Their name means, “Everlasting Spring.” This tremendous ministry has a wide range of social services and the best part is that they are Ethiopian started and led.
Above is a picture of me with Meron, the girl we sponsor. I look forward to connecting with her again when I travel. I’ve seen first hand the impact sponsorship makes for a girl like Meron. For only $30 a month she receives food, medical and educational support. If you are interested in helping a child through sponsorship you can do this through Bethany’s website.
