I cannot begin to explain how excited I am about this opportunity. I will be going to Ethiopia to and this is going to benefit so many people. I will have the joy and the honor of being able to work alongside of volunteers and others from Compassion International. I will get to touch lives of women in Ethiopia that are pregnant or have recently had babies and will be helping in a center that provides their basic needs through pregnancy and the first stages of life. I will be able to be at this center for a day touching these women's lives. I will then be working with the Compassion Child Sponsorship Program, which is what I have been involved with for years and am very passionate about. I will be visiting different church-based Compassion centers. I get to interact with the children and help share the story of Jesus as well as see the impact that is made daily by donations through Compassion Child Sponsorship. I will get to work with these children for three days and I am so excited that I will get to love on these kids for three days! I will then get one day where I get to meet the child that I actually sponsor! I get to meet Elsabeth and see how she is doing. I get to see the impact that the program of Compass Child Sponsorship is having on her life. I cannot wait to meet her and love on her. I have been writing letters back and forth with her for two years as well as supporting her financially for two years. I cannot wait for her to continue with this program and graduate one day to become a successful wonderful woman of God that I know she will be.
I will spend 10 days in Ethiopia altogether. I am so excited to see what God has in store for me as I will be impacting others lives. I already know that they will impact my life much more than I could ever impact theirs. Please consider donating as I cannot make it there on my own! I will be going to Ethiopia from May 18th-28th, 2018. My trip payments are due by FEBRUARY 7th, 2018. I know that this is short notice, but I feel as though God is calling me and I know that He will provide.
Thank you so much for being willing to change the lives of others in Ethiopia as well as my life.
