III. Goats support for our orphans
We have supported 15 orphans by providing them goats in this time again. We have selected 10 orphans from Welenchity area and 5 orphans from Wonjishawa area. These orphans live with their grandmoms, neighbors and with our church members homes. We have got the budget from our Unite 4 Africa office USA. This project has brought huge impact in the lives of the children by helping them to become self-sustained child in the community.
Modjo KG school project
I am always grateful to God for the opportunity He has given us to serve Him. I would also like to thank you all our partners for getting involved in the work of His kingdom. Please pray for us in the following prayer agendas: –
Pray for our newly opened KG school project in Modjo. Most of our children do not have chairs and desks. They are learning just by seating down on the ground.
Pray for our missionaries especially for those who are serving in Benishangul Region boarder of Sudan. We are struggling to cover their monthly expenses.
Pray for getting more Bibles for our people. Especially there is so much scarcity of Bibles in Oromo language here in Ethiopia.
