Hope In Ethiopia at T4A

The Together for Adoption Conference is in Austin this coming weekend, Oct 1 and 2. Over 1000 people are expected from all over the country to learn more about how the Church can be a part of the solution for the global orphan crisis.

There will be two sessions that will focus on the Hope in Ethiopia: Zeway partnership. We are thrilled to be able to present to others what God is doing in Zeway, offer them the chance to come partner with us, and also encourage attendees with their own orphan care initiatives.

Please be praying for this weekend. Not only for the Zeway sessions, but also that more people's hearts would be broken, as God's is, for the orphan.

Hope for Ephrem

While we were in Ethiopia, we had the priviledge of meeting Ephrem. He was a social worker in Ethiopia who was paralyzed in a car accident. Although his story is tragic, God has been faithful and continues to place miracles in his life. I made a personal promise to Ephrem that I would keep in touch with him and that He would always be a part of our family. Although Ephrem is paralyzed, he recently began feeling pain in his legs and the doctors are hopeful that his nerves have started to heal! This is truly a miracle!! Ephrem needs to go to a live in rehabilitation center for this care. The cost is $700 per month. It has been the burden of my heart to help my brother Ephrem. We've been in prayer about this and I have decided to donate 100% of the profits from my Funky Fish collection to help Ephrem with his medical expenses. Please consider making a purchase and helping our brother Ephrem. If you can't make a purchase, please consider spreading the word.

To see the jewelry, please visit or Funky Fish on facebook.

Thank you.

The godly cry out and the Lord hears; he saves them from all their troubles.
Psalm 34:17

Artwork in Grace Gallery

Be sure to drop by the Gallery at Grace Covenant Church to view the exhibit: Hope in the Faces of Zeway. During the summer team trip, the orphans in the partnership were offered paper, colored pencils and materials, and inspiration to create beautiful works of art. The inspiration were their own faces as they drew self-portraits.

There will be more to come on-line about the artwork for those of you who do not attend Grace Covenant, so please be looking for more information about the exhibit.

Enjoy a sneak preview of Hope in the Faces of Zeway:
