Ethiopian Orthodox Church Building Project

እግዚአብሔር በደስታ የሚሰጠውን ይወዳልና እያንዳንዱ በልቡ እንዳሰበ ይስጥ ፤ በሀዘን ወይም በግድ ያይደለ።
~2ኛ ቆሮ 9:7

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
~2 Corinthians 9:6-7 

Debre Sahil Kidus Amanuel and Kidus Raguel Church located in Dessie, Amhara Region, Ethiopia is currently under construction. This fundraising campaign aims to raise money to help complete the project. This campaign gives us a chance to participate directly in the project.
As many of you know, religious building projects get funded by small donors and it's usually these small contributions that make a difference. The project has reached 45% completion. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and other factors, donations have decreased substantially and more funding is needed as soon as possible.
Participating in such campaigns not only gets the project closer to completion, but also gives each and every one of us the satisfaction of mind knowing that we have contributed in building a church dedicated to our Lord and Savior. This fundraising campaign is organized by:
1. Tewodros Bayafers
2. Fetle E. Hussien
3. Elsa A. Adal
4. Abiy Kebede 
5. Mastawet Masresha
We have the permission from church leadership to raise money on behalf of the church as indicated in the attached file below. In addition, we have attached pictures that show the design and current construction progress.
Those of us who are running this fundraising campaign along with the church's  leadership and congregants are extremely grateful for your contribution and pray that God values your donation.
