We’re 1 week away from leaving and while we’re excited, we are also experiencing some resistance. From what I understand, there has been a change in the political leadership for the city we’re going to & it seems like they might not be as receptive to everything we have been planning. Additionally, it seems like there’s some tension between the Orthodox church & the Evangelical churches – this has been going on for quite some time. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible to benefit the majority of the people of the city where we’re ministering. I’m not interested in accentuating any tension, but rather how we can make the improvements for the people.
Please pray that our time in Ethiopia is fruitful:
- that we are peacemakers,
- that we have wisdom,
- that we have tremendous team unity
- great display of God’s power
- that Jesus is glorified
Most of all, please pray that we please God – 2 Cor 5:9 & 1 Thess 2:4
