We would like to appeal for your help on behalf of a young disciple in our body of churches. Amanuel Dandena has been a disciple for the last 2 years. He is an Ethiopian student who went to the US to attend university and during his first year, became a disciple. Amanuel has since helped his parents, who live in Ethiopia, to become disciples. Through this family, people are being converted in the US and in Ethiopia. Amanuel is also doing very well in his studies with 3.73 GPA.
Amanuel’s parents have been working to put him and his sister through university but with the effects of COVID 19, they have run into a challenge and are unable to pay for tuition. His parents are desperately seeking a solution to this problem, up to and including, selling their home to pay. During this time of financial hardship, however, we wanted to appeal to you on their behalf. If there is anything you can do to help Amanuel, even if it’s in a small way, it will be highly appreciated. We believe if we come together, God is able to multiply even small contributions into what is needed.
Currently, Amanuel is in his 3rd year of university and needs $18, 000 to finish the year. Because he is a foreign student, his tuition is double an American in-state student. Efforts to secure a loan failed due to lack of someone to co-sign for him. Amanuel has applied for different scholarships but that will take some time.
We highly appreciate any donations you make toward helping Amanuel and his family.
