Use My Hands

by Crystal Martinez As I prepared for my first trip abroad accompanied by two friends from church, I expected that we were going to Ethiopia to bless and give practical support to poor ladies who needed encouragement.  But oh my goodness, I had no idea what God had in...

Imprisoned for Their Faith

by Malcolm MacLeod*   *I have known Malcolm for years.  He and I started working in Ethiopia about the same time and have since joined forces to provide support for missionaries laboring in areas with high potential for persecution.  Malcolm’s organization, Steadfast...

“Big” Kids Too!

Our big kids want to say thanks too! Your support provides for all their needs while we work hard to find families for each one. We cannot do it without...

People Who Have Never Heard

by Joy Casey In worldwide mission circles the definition of an Unreached People Group (UPG) is a group of people with the same language and culture where there is less than 2% Christ followers and no indigenous, replicating church.  NewLife is focusing on 500,000...

Setting Our Hearts

Right at the start of this busy season is a day that can help us set our hearts on Jesus’ example of giving. Tomorrow, November 27, is #GivingTuesday. We want to invite you to link arms with us by supporting our efforts to care for and find families for abandoned...

Changing a Life Story

Adoption is not God's call for everyone... but everyone is called to help the orphan and the widow. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27...

Monkeying Around

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia The group of gals I am traveling with this month are loads of fun to be around.  They have their feet on the ground, tackle any need presented, are compassionate servants --  overall a dream team. After church our first Sunday, we went to a...

The Sisterhood of Women

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia We woke to the aftermath of a cooling rain (it has been hot!) but worried what the “roads” would be like to the village we were to go to.  This is the anticipated day to meet 100 recently converted women in a M*slim dominated area.  Dinah,...

Utter Joy

by Dinah Monahan “When my husband accepted Jesus, he had to leave because he would be killed. We lost all family. We lost everything we had. It was very hard.” As I listened to this beautiful wife of an indigenous missionary in a town in Ethiopia share her story, I...

A Radical Conversion | An Unlikely Convert

by Joy Casey I don’t know why God sometimes moves in ways that easily let us see His miraculous hand and in other circumstances all we can experience is hard work with little to show for it.  Of course, the stories we like to tell and you like to read are about God’s...

Changing the End of the Story

In Shashemene, Ethiopia a woman was walking one morning early last month along the river that runs behind a church.  She heard a baby’s cry and began searching along the river bank.  There in the dirt she found a tiny baby boy.  She enveloped him in her wrap and took...

Don’t Forget the Kids!

Exiting the terminal in Addis Ababa and entering the mayhem of traffic, I never cease to be astounded at the crush of people … everywhere.  Of course Addis Ababa is a teeming city of close to 4 million people so sidewalk and street congestion can be expected.  But...

Lost and Found

We don’t know why anyone would abandon a sweet baby boy only one month old and leave him on the ground next to a fence post. Little Burka was in good health the night a woman found him and took him to the police. Perhaps his mother was a single woman who faced...

Does Sponsorship Make A Difference?

by Jason Barta Executive Director, NewLife Ethiopia Another school year is about to begin for 60 children in Ethiopia!  We are excited to add a third classroom to our kindergarten this year, making it possible for 20 additional students to start their education in a...

Thanks to you…

Last week I got our monthly orphanage reports, with photos and updates on each of the 13 babies and children in our nannies' care.  This one floored me. This sweet little girl has been transformed!  See for yourself what good preemie formula and lots of love and...

How ‘Bout A Story?

This past week 40 people learned oral Bible stories along with techniques on how to facilitate an inductive study of the story, also done orally.  The workshop was held in one of our church plants in a primarily Muslim village.  Villages in this area of Ethiopia are...

Adoption in Ethiopia ~ A Cultural Shift

The Ethiopian culture does not support or encourage adoption.  Adoptees traditionally are looked at as second class citizens and certainly not on equal footing with biological children.  Even the word ‘adopted’ in Romans 8:12 is omitted in the current Amharic...

Why Celebrate Adoption?

Those of us working with NewLife Ethiopia are radically and passionately committed to providing family for every child brought into our care.   We are guilty of celebrating with pictures and details every time a little one is enveloped by a family of their very own. ...

Special Need – Special Girl

by Joy Casey Michu stole my heart.  I walked into the nursery on my last trip to Shashemene and saw a little girl who physically looked like a baby except that her engaging smile showed a full set of teeth and her cognitive demeanor was definitely not that of a baby....

God’s Word for Women

In a dusty village sprawled over the savannah in southern Ethiopia one-hundred Christian women will gather in late fall for a day of worship, teaching and sweet fellowship.  The women are recent Christ-followers.  Most are illiterate.  They are mothers of large...

A Rescued Life!

I have an update on our little baby Felmetuu… she is the precious little one who was left for dead on a riverbank as a premature newborn. This is what she looked like when she was placed in our orphanage after a month in the hospital and a futile search for anyone who...

Be Yerosan’s Advocate?

We need your help to find a support partner for each abandoned child in our orphanage.  It costs approximately $90/month per child just for formula but your monthly sponsorship of $50 will help us immensely. This darling baby boy was abandoned in a hospital waiting...

Orphaned No More

Naoli came to our orphanage in March 2017 when he was less than one week old, so he has spent his entire life in the care of our wonderful nanny-mommies.  He was abandoned behind a wooden pool shop in Shashemene and left for dead. God, however, had His eye on Naoli...

My name is Lalise

  My name is Lalise (La-lee’-say) and I am seven weeks old. Late one night in early June a man was walking home and heard me crying.  He searched in the dark to see who it was and was shocked to find me laying on the ground next to a house.  After checking with a...
