Welcome to the Ethiopia short-term mission team’s website! We are so honored and delighted to have you as a friend, partner and supporter, and that you have joined us on our Kingdom Adventure to Ethiopia. Your prayer support has been a huge encouragement, blessing and source of strength and comfort for us. We are depending on your prayers to help see us through the next seventeen days when we are in Ethiopia.

During the trip, our team will work with Hope Enterprises in Addis Ababa and Desi to minister to the poorest of the poor. We will have opportunities to teach AIDS awareness and education to over 1,400 kids, share Bible stories while teaching Christian principles, play games, do hands-on crafts and activities with the kids. We will also have the opportunity to teach vocational and computer skills with the older youth and adults. The team hopes to build relationships with children and adults who are suffering from poverty and HIV/AIDS. One of our main goals is to try and learn as much as we can about the HIV/AIDS pandemic that is running rampant in Ethiopia. The team hopes to be a catalyst at MPPC to raise the height of HIV/AIDS awareness and our church’s role in it.

This website will become our team’s online diary where we will record and share with you our daily activities in Ethiopia, prayer requests, and pictures of our experiences. Whether you are in California or Tennessee, Turkey or Australia, we invite you to check back daily as you share in this great Kingdom Adventure and journey with us.

Thank you for your support, prayers and love that enable us to go forth in community with L.E.G.G.S – Love, Encouragement, Grace, Growth, and Serving – in order to glorify God.
