Exciting FEP Update

Aug 16, 2022

You are such a vital part of our mission, and we don’t want you to miss out on this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of fifty new families at our Family Empowerment Center.
These new families just started in the program on August 1, and we’ve been going full force ever since.
As you help us to empower the mothers of these 50 new families on a path to self-sufficiency, there is also a huge opportunity to impact the lives of their children as well.
It’s been an exciting time, but if we want to “keep it real,” it’s been pretty crazy! 🙂
Here’s what’s been happening (you can also check out the photos below):
  • We are serving more children than ever before. They are eating two healthy meals each day. And they are fully engaged in our summer camps.
  • Christ’s love was shared by a mission team that was in Ethiopia from the US last week, and the children enjoyed art, math, and computer activities.
  • The children are filled with smiles, laughter, and curiosity.
  • The new FEP mothers have gone through orientation, and their training has gotten off to a great start.
One of the challenges we’re experiencing is that our budget is being stretched! Due to inflation, food costs are higher than we anticpated by 35-50%, and it’s costing us exponentially more to feed 70+ children daily — which is more kids than we anticipated.
You can help!
You can help cover the costs of food, furniture, and supplies needed to make sure every child and family has everything they need to succeed.
Would you prayerfully consider making a donation to help us reach our goal of raising $20,000 this summer?
Any amount, truly, will truly make a tremendous impact on the lives of these new families we are serving.
We are over halfway to our goal…can you help us reach it?
