Ethiopia Tour 2008
Impacting The Future of Ethiopia
This Trek Changed the Landscape AND Impacted the Future of Ethiopia!
Sarah Bowling and her Saving Moses Team partnered with Teen Mania Global Expeditions to share God’s love, power, and Word with adults and children in the Ethiopian capitol of Addis Ababa, the city of Gonder, and its surrounding villages.
The two teams traveled to Bridge to Israel in Ethiopia orphanage where they “lived” for a week. They spent precious time with the orphans and hosted a Vacation Bible School. worldchild also gave basic hygiene and school supplies to three different schools in the area.
While in Ethiopia, the teams saw first-hand the deplorable condition of the drinking water. Everyday 10,000 people die from illnesses contracted from impure water—most of the deaths are children under the age of five. To help with this devastating problem, the teams set up a temporary medical clinic in one of the schools where medical staff administered de-worming medication to 500 of the local children.
In the capital city of Addis Ababa, the teams brought in over 500 children from the surrounding areas to Pastor Eyob Mamo’s Impact Ethiopia Church where they helped serve the children and church staff a healthy meal and gave them a fun day away from their challenging circumstances.
The teams also had an opportunity to change the landscape and impact the future of this area by planting over 500 trees in a re-forestation project.
Five healing meetings were held at a local theater, the largest indoor venue in the area. Each meeting presented vibrant worship, powerful dramas, and anointed messages from Sarah. The teams joyfully prayed for hundreds of people and saw amazing healings at each service.
This was an awesome trip and tremendous work was done…check out this video recap of the Ethiopia Trek ’08 for the whole, amazing story.
