Please join us…

As a team of four (Mark Wolbert and Joy Casey are pictured above) prepare to travel to Ethiopia on March 27th, please join us in covering them in prayer! There is much to be accomplished and they’ll need God’s equipping and provision to see it happen!

Here is a short list of some specific things you can be praying for:
1. New orphanage in Addis Ababa (licensing, physical needs)
2. Interviewing children – videos, pictures
3. Introducing many children to their new families via photos
4. Travel safety – to and from and within Ethiopia
5. Health and stamina for the team: Joy, Mark, Ben and Jeff
6. The water project for the villages – delivery system, purification system
7. Wisdom for:
  • How God wants YWAM to work with the Gimbie hospital and the women and children of that region
  • Decisions affecting life videos we’re making for each child being adopted
  • Planning for missions teams this summer
  • Interfacing with children and their caregivers
  • Interacting with the orphanage directors: Tezera, Girma, Samuel
God, as You have promised, generously provide all that the team going to Ethiopia will need so that they will always have not only what they need but plenty left over to share with others. As they share freely and give generously to the poor, their good deeds will be remembered forever! For God, You are the One who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, provide and increase the team’s resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity. Enrich them in every way as they take Your gifts to those who need them – and the result will be thanksgiving to You!
from 2 Cor 9:8-11 NLT

Joy and Mark plan to send daily updates from Ethiopia (internet connections permitting!) which will be posted on the blog. Please check here frequently to follow their trip and hear about how God is working! Thanks so much for your prayers!
