Famine relief for Ethiopia
Published: March 16, 2016

God’s people are rallying around our Ethiopia team to provide food for schoolchildren in famine-affected areas. Through BMM’s World Relief fund and concerned donors, nearly $17,000 of the needed $20,000 has been provided to purchase high-energy biscuits and peanut butter for children in the drought-stricken Fyel Wuha area. Without this supplemental nutrition, the children would not have the energy to continue attending school.

Ministry in Ethiopia is considered Creative Access, requiring nontraditional means to create a platform for sharing the gospel. Our Ethiopia team members serve as healthcare workers helping orphans and vulnerable children. A fellowship has been organized and an Ethiopian young man is being trained at a BMM Bible college in Ghana and plans to be a pastor.

The ministry in Fyel Wuha is another opportunity for the team to give testimony of the saving grace of Jesus Christ as they meet significant needs in Ethiopian families. They are working alongside the Fyel Wuha parent-teacher association, which was delighted to have the means to keep their children in school.  Each month, the missionaries will distribute biscuits and peanut butter to feed 1,700 students from elementary to secondary-age levels. The distributions will continue until June 2016, when school will be out and maize will be available once again.

We invite you to help the team finish their goal. Gifts given to World Relief-Ethiopia  will be sent to our team to complete this project:
