August 7th marked the 10th year anniversary of LIA-Ethiopia!
It is with great joy that we are able to announce this milestone regarding the work in Ethiopia. We are especially grateful for Dr. Yared Mekonnen, LIA-Ethiopia Country Director, and the entire Ethiopia team as they have faithfully served and sacrificed to ensure the success of the ministry in this country. They have remained steadfast in the direction of the Lord and have allowed God to work through the ministry, impacting the “least of these” in the communities throughout Ethiopia over the years.
We ask that you would join us in a prayer of thanksgiving for the growth of LIA-Ethiopia over these last 10 years.
For we have seen economic empowerment in low to no income families.
We have seen street children rise up against the odds creating a sustainable life for themselves off of the streets.
We have seen water and sanitation initiatives improve the quality of life for many households.
We have seen the orphans and widows within the community cared for and loved.
We have seen the church rise up and refuse to stand for the injustices of poverty that plague Ethiopia.
Through God’s mighty direction, we are praying for continued growth and development in the churches and communities we serve in Ethiopia. We ask that you would join us as we continue to pray for the LIA staff, church partners, volunteers, and the people in the communities in Jimma, Addis Ababa, Merkato, Nazaret, and Debre Birhan Ethiopia.
God is moving in Ethiopia and we are so grateful to share just a glimpse of His work with you!
