Fundraising for the Awake & Alive Mission Trip in September!
I am going with Awake & Alive to Kechene, Ethiopia for the opening of the school we have been raising funds for. Kechene is a slum where the women are widowed. They have to leave their small children at home alone all day while they go work trying to raise money for their families. The young children are left at home with no one to care for them, love them, and they currently receive no education.
Here is what we will be doing while on this trip:
-Primarily, be a blessing and a prescence to the widows and children of Kechene, and get to know the mothers and the 30 students who will be attending the school.
-Holding a Vacation Bible School for the children over the weekend.
-Celebrating the opening of the school on September 12th with the staff and children.
-Participating in the filming of a documentary by a professional filmmaker.
-Spending a day at the local orphanage, spending time with the kids and letting them know they are loved.
If you would like to help me in changing these wonderful kids lives, I would appreciate it more than words can say. I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!
