DSC04575’t Look Away

Thank you Efren. Here’s a video worth a thousand words. May the Spirit of God shed abroad in our hearts the love for the poor and may we share the power and authority that each of us has received from the Lord’s victory over poverty, sickness and death we have inherited. Although we are helping such people wherever we go, our message is this authority we have inherited. As Jesus said to His neighbors in Nazereth (Lk. 4:21-24), “You will surely say this proverb to Me, Physician heal yourself …” There is a spiritual purpose in Jesus saying this, as He walked in divine health and knew the importance of believeing the words of His Father’s Spirit that we must experience the power of divine healing before we can impart it to others. We must know that we have the power over the enemies’ testing of us in the areas of poverty, sickness and death!!!

We Are Bethel Girl's Home

We have been living in extremely impoverished conditions but now are sleeping in beds and have moved in with many of our friends who lived in the same neighborhood. Here we are altogether!!! Our house mom, Zem Zem is in the middle and we are experiencing her unconditional love and patience; we have never lived in a structured environmrnt like this so there are many things we don’t understand regarding the behavior that is expected of us. Our big sisters, Tigist and Beite are at our flanks and always helping our mom ¬†correct us and direct us. Tigist is very important in this team effort because she speaks Wylitenna, the language of most of us and one that is not spoken by many in this Sidama region of Ethiopia.
