Hello! I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity God has presented to me. During the summer of 2020, I will be going to Ethiopia with SIM.
SIM is an international mission organization with more than 4,000 workers serving in close to 80 countries. SIM members serve God among many diverse people groups in every continent. SIM workers are international themselves, representing about 70 nationalities. They serve in a wide variety of career fields. SIM is looking for people who love Jesus and who are willing to use their skills on one of their ministry teams worldwide.
I am very excited and humbled to have this opportunity. This trip is very special to me not only because it is an opportunity for me to reach people with the love of Christ, but because I have felt called to work full-time as a bi-vocational missionary in Ethiopia for a very long time. Those of you who know me have heard of all of the crazy stories that I have told of how God has continually reminded me of the work that He wants me to be a part of in this country. I have tried and tried to go on mission trips to Ethiopia in the past and have continually received closed doors and a simple no from God, without understanding why. I have prayed for years for this opportunity and so far, deeply feel as if God has been saying yes to this opportunity.
I will be working in both Mekele and Addis Ababa at various times during this trip. I have the opportunity to work at a youth center in Mekelle, specifically with the deaf education and health education programs. I also will take a trip to Addis Ababa at some point during my trip to explore ministry at the CURE hospital there as well as potentially a refuge/home for girls living on the street.
I am very thankful for these opportunities, but I need your help in order to get me there. Please consider donating and praying for this trip so that God’s word can be spread among those in Ethiopia.
