2nd Quarterly Newsletter- April 2020

Hello, Friends!


What's New

Our ministry's mission to EMBRACE, EQUIP, EMPOWER, and EMPLOY is ongoing.

Heading into the Easter season COVID-19 concerns occupy our minds, and Ethiopia, with its severe poverty and lack of medical care and infrastructure, is beginning to report more cases at the writing of this newsletter. We ask you to continue praying for our brothers and sisters there and throughout the world. Furthermore, be assured that your generous support for the families in our program will continue without interruption. Please read Board President Jeff Butler's message on our website by clicking the button below:

Life Goes On

Although difficult with self-isolation, life continues in our project areas. Our case managers report they are able to distribute the necessary monthly supplies of food, household goods, basic medicine, and rent assistance to your families.
However, there remain many needs that must be met, and families that still need to be sponsored. During these trying times, prayerfully consider an additional donation or sponsoring one or more families. Also, if you have friends or family interested in finding a non-profit to support during this time, please share Mission 1:27 with them.

What We're Doing

We currently plan to send an extra $1,500 each month, over the next several months, to be used to buy soap, hand sanitizer, and other hygiene supplies as needed to try and help prevent spread of the coronavirus in our project areas.

If you or someone you know is looking for a way to help during the COVID-19 crisis, consider a donation to our general fund designated either for our hygiene product drive or where needed most. We are extremely grateful and thankful for all of your support.
