Out of the team of 5 who went to Zeway only 4 returned. Rachael Moise, recent masters graduate of social work stayed behind in Addis Ababa. She has lived in Ethiopia for several summers and returned this time for a 2 year stay working at a mission guest house.
Rachael goes to Austin Stone when she is in Austin, but upon hearing about Hope in Ethiopia and Grace's work there, she attended several gatherings to learn more. Her heart, her skills and her interests seem to just match perfectly with the vision of the Hope in Ethiopia.
She was able to join the team that went in July and as Matt recalled "She just looked like one of those girls who you see photographed in magazines serving in Africa."
It has been amazing to see how God is weaving all sorts of people into this Partnership and with Rachael's skills in social work, she is a perfect thread in His tapestry. Already, she is tackling several reports and research projects for the Partnership while she also serves at the missionary guest house.
So please be praying for Rachael as she serves alongside us, though across the ocean. You can read more about Rachael's adventures on her blogsite.
