Ethiopia bound

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.

Thanks!
