"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

New sponsorship in Ethiopia!

Introducing Ashenafi!

Another new kid to write! Probably shouldn't call him a kid. He'll be 20 on June 26th!
His family duties are:
Washing clothes
Running errands
Carrying water
Gathering firewood
Kitchen help

He is in 11th grade and participates in church, bible class, and chior. His parents are alive but not together. His guardians are his grandparents. He likes to watch TV, play soccor, swim, and play ping pong. He lives in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia were typical income is $12 a month.

I believe that children in Ethiopia age out of the compassion program at age 22. I have 2 years to get to know him! Again we have been blessed!
