A re-post from our dear friends, the Mihnovich family at http://ourunveiledfaces.blogspot.com - help us transform a community!
We all know that true and lasting transformation has to come from the inside out.
And we know the surest way to impact a family is though the heart of the mama who cares for it.
We have the most amazing opportunity to be a part of totally changing the spirit of an entire community by helping to build a grain mill for the city
where 4 of our children lived.
Covenant Orphanage in partnership with One Child Campaign would like to build a grain mill for the women of Holeta and at the same time, reach out with the LOVE of CHRIST and teach them how to allow Him to transform their families.
It is the most beautiful plan.
There is a group of women, many of them widows, meeting together already called,
"Let's Have Coffee."
By helping them fund a MUCH needed grain mill, they will see that this provision has indeed come from the Hands of JESUS Himself-- your hands-- represencing HIM on this earth to provide sustenance for their families. What could this mean for them?
It could mean no more witchcraft.
It could mean no more adding another wife to the family.
It could mean no more violence.
It could mean no more hunger.
It could mean no more nakedness.
It could mean no longer having to accept working in this greenhouse-- a certain death sentence because of the toxic chemicals they work with.
It could mean no more forced exploitation.
It could mean no more FEAR of death because they will be rescued out of darkness and brought into HIS marvelous LIGHT!
We need just 200 people to donate $20 each through the One Child Campaign donate button on the sidebar. Because of an amazing matching grant provided through a benefit run by our awesome friends
The Stums-- the fruit just keeps multiplying!!!--
this baby will be DONE!
---and we need your prayers that the seeds planted will take root quickly to turn this town around!
Any overflow will go to fund the many other projects that One Child Campaign has underway in Ethiopia helping orphans and widows.
There, in the presence of the LORD your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the LORD your God has blessed you.
One Child Campaign is a ministry outreach of Faith Central Ministries. The vision of the Orphan Awareness and Vision trips is to create a united effort of ministries to give voice to the over 5.5 million orphans in Ethiopia and around the world. This will be accomplished through sponsorship, empowerment and discipleship that will meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the children. This trip will immerse you into the lives of orphans and street kids. It will create an experience that will raise awareness not only to the orphan, but also for the body of Christ to realize the impact it can have through advocacy and adoption. An important part of our ministry is to provide resources for adoptive families. This is a mission to raise up a generation with selfless faith. Together, we can breathe hope into the orphan crisis.
