On July 8th, a group of 7 women will travel to Ethiopia to minister God’s love to several groups of widows and teenaged orphans. If you looked strictly at outward appearances, the American women and the Ethiopian women wouldn’t seem to have a lot in common. But Christ’s transforming love has touched both groups! And that’s the wonderful message of the gospel.
The goal of this trip is twofold. For the widows, who are each destitute and dependent on the help of others, the team wants to bring love, prayer, God’s word and practical help. For the teen girls, most of whom have suffered profound loss and are growing up without the love and guidance of a mother, our team will lavish attention, laughter, love, pampering and prayer. Who better to understand the heart of a woman than another woman?
