(Visiting Orphans) In Ethiopia, our teams invest in impoverished children and orphan’s lives. Our trips to Ethiopia are popular due to work we are doing in partnership with Project 61
at the city dump in Addis Ababa. Many children who live and work in the dump are receiving sponsorships and those on the team are returning with their lives changed forever. Our prayer at Visiting
Orphans is that we will hear and answer the cry of the orphan. We are doing this in Ethiopia through visiting orphanages that are rarely visited by others, letting the children know they are loved by each of us and their Abba Father, Jesus Christ. Each Visiting Orphans team returns with news of other unreached orphanages or children and so we build each itinerary based on the last trip.
You can also follow along on my Ethiopia trip blog
for mission updates, incredible stories about the ministries we will serve and building relationships pre-trip with the team leaders. The team will work with literally hundreds of orphans and incredible projects during our time in Ethiopia.
I’m planning with Visiting Orphans ministry projects that are out of the box. I want the time we spend in Ethiopia to be life changing for the children we work with. You will have a chance to love with all your hearts.
Here’s a few things you will get to do:
The team will be working in Addis Ababa with Project 61 for extreme needy children living in the Korah city dump and a 2-day ministry for orphaned street children (feeding program). We will have a special outreach at an orphanage 1.5 hours outside the city, as well as an excursion to Negash Lodge to see the beauty of rural Ethiopia. We will also visit Fistula Hospital for an exclusive tour of the center and the courageous women featured in the movie “A Walk To Beautiful.” [itinerary subject to change]
