Help with Hurricane Michael and other disaster relief efforts.
Join us November 7-17, 2019 as we return to one of the oldest nations in the world and the country where coffee was first discovered. We will be working with one of our long time partners, Crisis Aid International in rural Ethiopia to provide medical and dental care to people in remote areas. Come make a lasting impact on the amazing families in Ethiopia!Missions
A medical/dental clinic in this area is rare and the needs are tremendous. On this outreach we will help many of the sick and hurting who would otherwise go without much needed treatment. We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat patients' needs as they present. We will also pray with every patient and give them an opportunity to receive Christ. The team will be staying in a hotel based in the rural area.
