Tomorrow morning I'm heading to Lalibela, Ethiopia and will likely be out of pocket from the internet for a few days. This is the home to some of the oldest churches in the world and has been called, The Eighth wonder of the world. Google it - the churches are carved, inside and out, entirely out of rock. They date back to the 11th or 12th century.
This trip has been so amazing. My heart burns for Ethiopia in a million ways. The kids here are amazing. Full of life and as kind as can be. Today, we were in an orphanage called Kolfe, a boys home with about 120 kids. You would think this place so filled with testosterone, would be a bit dangerous, cold and resistant. Just the opposite. These boys had incredible manners, they showed so much respect to us, even bowing when they met us. And, it is dirt poor. They have nothing, and I mean nothing. They never get to eat meat, and don't even have the money for a hair cut. They just want the chance to be men, to make their mark on life and accomplish something. Many have dreams of going to college, and I want to help them.
Sponsoring this place would transform your community, I promise you. I'll post pictures and video when I get home.
I think we are up to 6 orphanages that will soon be available for sponsorship. I'm hoping to have 8 by the time we leave. The vision trip looks like it will be some time in April. Please email me if you want to come.
Thanks for the prayers. God is doing great things in this beautiful country. With His help we can change the lives of these kids forever. Want to be a part? Just say yes!
