SPONSOR A WIDOW TODAY
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world." James 1:27
In ethiopia there is no system in place to take care of the elderly widows. While many of them have homes to sleep in, most of them have no money for food or medicine, many are disabled, and some are even trying to take care of young orphans who have lost their parents! this leaves them no choice but to beg on the streets all day long.
one of our indigenous church partners is doing their best to show the love of christ to these widows by providing a shelter with food, coffee, small business trainings and social activities. Currently there are 45 widows being supported and 10 of them have grade school aged grandchildren that lost their parents! most of the women in this project do not follow jesus, but every day we play audio bibles and christian films to educate them about the love of christ! we have seen 5 women decide to follow jesus in the last two years!
We have been supporting this project for nearly two years now but our funding is about to run out and we need your help!
it only costs $35 per month per widow to keep this project going!

Every dollar really makes an impact!
