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...

Our Dedicated Staff in Ethiopia

We at NewLife Ethiopia are indeed blessed!  Our U.S. staff works closely with an extensive Ethiopian staff who labor tirelessly to further God’s kingdom purposes. Each person God has provided to lead a specific program has brought vision, expertise and ability to...

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...
