Summer Reading

What parent doesn't appreciate some suggestions for summertime activities with their kids?  After playing outside, it's nice for parents and kids to snuggle up together with a good book.  Here are a few you might check out at your local library or bookstore. These...

Two of God’s Mighty Men

Seventy-five percent of the men sent to their tribes as missionaries have come to the Lord through dreams and visions.  Many received miraculous healings that drove them to learn more about this Jesus who heals.  The men serving among four unreached people groups in...

No Longer Left Behind

A precious little boy has grown up in our Mana Gammachuu orphanage, having been brought to us when he was found abandoned outside of a cafe at about six-months-old. Esubalew turned 4-years-old last month.  He is a hefty little guy, curious and engaging. A year ago six...

Family Helping Family

A small but growing group of new believers in rural Ethiopia have been meeting in a ‘church’ made out of sticks covered with tarps for worship and teaching from God’s word. They are hungry to learn all they can about Jesus Christ, who has set them free from a life of...

Great Stuff to Build a Church!

Sozo Church and NewLife Ethiopia are sponsoring a garage sale this weekend in Puyallup, WA. All proceeds will go to build a new church in Ethiopia - a community of new believers has outgrown meeting in their homes! If you are in the local Seattle/Tacoma area, please...

Aftermath of Destruction

Why does God call us to dangerous places, to the highways and the hedges of the world? Because God’s house is not yet full.  Because there are places that are empty and guests who have not yet received their invitation. His followers go to dangerous places because God...

Sad News This Morning

We received word today that Yawe, our most recent little resident at the Mana Gammachuu orphanage, has passed away.  She came into our care in mid-February, estimated to be only one day old but obviously born prematurely. She initially received preemie formula and...

When Your Wife Has A Dream…

Abdul’s wife kept having a similar dream night after night.  Going about her busy days caring for her seven children, Worke would ponder and wonder about the kind man in white that appeared to her while she slept.  She was not frightened when the man in her dream...

A Disturbing Dream

Seventy-five percent of the men sent to their tribes as missionaries have come to the Lord through dreams and visions.  Many received miraculous healings that drove them to learn more about this Jesus who heals.  The men serving among four unreached people groups in...

We are GLAD!

by Joy Casey We believe that it is right to acknowledge whenever we can, the support that is given to our ministry. As I was writing notes of thanks to individuals, it occurred to me that my thoughts might be worth sharing more broadly. While writing to ministry...

Advocate for the Defenseless

Just recently born. Impossibly tiny. Dangerously close to death. Most every baby at our Mana Gammachuu orphanage comes to us the same way. The police usually bring these abandoned children to the orphanage, with the government’s approval, because there is no other...

Violence and Destruction – An Update

A good friend of our ministry, Malcolm from Steadfast Global*, flew from Scotland to Ethiopia after hearing of the rampage against churches in an area of Ethiopia where NLE is committed to sharing the gospel with a tribe that is 99.8% fundamental M*slims.  You can...

An Urgent Call to Prayer

On February 9th a radicalized M*slim tribe rose up against anything representing Christianity in their tribal area.  Thirteen Christian churches were either burned or the inside furnishings smashed to pieces.  A Christian elementary school in conjunction with the...

First Moms

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia I greeted old friends today.  We traveled a road together that was bittersweet for both of us.  Each woman made a decision for their child that none of us would ever want to make.  I watched these mothers agonize over their inability to...

Encouraging Problems ~ Part 2

All the places we set foot on today are strong M*slim areas.  Sheiks are radicalizing the people and there is stronger resistance to the gospel.  Despite the challenges, three house churches are bursting their seams.  One crams 60 people into a room about the size of...

Encouraging Problems ~ Part 1

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia What a day!  We left shortly after sunrise this morning in our trusty Land Cruiser to visit five church fellowships deep in the countryside. We knew the roads would be more like goat tracks and we were not disappointed.  It was a rock-n-roll...

What a Privilege!

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia I wish there was a way to capture the ambiance right now.  Seems strange to be saying that in the heart of Ethiopia where food can be, well, interesting and the physical amenities… one learns to adjust.  But right now the weather is perfect,...

Becoming Sons and Daughters

“We named him Nahom because it means God gives us something special.”  And indeed He did.  Nahom, formerly known as Burka in the orphanage, has easily adjusted to his new life with his adopted mother and father.  Erymaus and Genet came to the orphanage just to look...

Orphanage News

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia Today was spent at our Mana Gammachuu (Joyful Place) orphanage in the town of Shashemene.  Being with the babies and toddlers always rejuvenates me.  Three babies recently were adopted and Michu, our little girl with cerebral palsy, has been...

Believing for More

.by Joy Casey in Ethiopia A new church is rapidly growing in one M*slim town in Ethiopia.  There are two Ethiopian missionaries living and working there who are doing a terrific job of engaging the people.  Right now the church meets in a storage room that was rented...

A Wall of Security

by Joy Casey in Ethiopia Jason Barta, Jeff Burns and I are traveling this week to see the evangelism work being done by our dedicated indigenous missionaries.  We will be visiting many villages and bringing encouragement to the men and their wives serving in hard...

Humble Beginnings

 Joy Casey in Ethiopia Our car bumped and weaved across dusty fields passing acacia trees, herds of camels and thatched round huts with semi-clad children playing while their colorfully dressed mothers busied themselves with daily chores. We followed no road, our...

A Line in the Sand

God’s mercies are new each morning as the group from Lighthouse Church will attest to.  They are serving six days in a rural M*slim village experiencing God’s amazing grace in a concentrated, fresh way.  Pastor Paul held a leaders’ workshop for 25 men teaching...

New Life for Young Lives

Lighthouse Christian Center in Washington has “adopted” a M*slim village in Ethiopia.  Over the past five years, this church has sown into the church plant, evangelism outreach and kindergarten in this out-of-the-way area.  Pastor Paul Moffett from Lighthouse and...
