"Traveling to Ethiopia numerous times has truly been one of the biggest blessings in my life. God has given me such an incredible love for the people there, and each trip I take it truly changes me more and more. So very grateful to help give support to such incredible people that bless me far more than I could ever bless them."
"Perspective is the one thing I think of when I think about my trip to Ethiopia. Seeing such a vast contrast in the way we live in America, and the way others live in Ethiopia, gave me a life changing sense of gratitude for the blessings that God has given me. I realized that with minor changes to our finances and our lifestyles, we can change the whole world for someone in Ethiopia."
"Wow, where do I even begin to explain my first foreign mission trip to Ethiopia? My first thought is, you must “Be There” in order to truly see, hear and smell the world they live in. Pictures from magazines, news articles and stories people tell, just give you a glimpse of how the people of Ethiopia live. I will forever remember; the people’s faces as we passed by, the joy people felt as we hugged and the friendship we started as we drank coffee together. And most importantly, the times we spent worshiping the same Heavenly Father. I am waiting until the day I return to show the people of Ethiopia my love and friendship. Because of this trip, they have a special place in my heart."
