OUR MISSION:

To joyfully serve God by serving the poor, vulnerable women and children, while promoting compassion, community and sustainable development.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

SEEK & SPEND:

SEEK:

We seek to courageously live out the Gospel and be the hands and feet of Christ.  To see the lost found, the blind see, the lame walk, and justice for the oppressed.

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?  Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?  In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2: 14-17

SPEND:

To spend our lives for the lost, the downtrodden, the oppressed, the poor, the widowed, and the orphaned around the world.

…and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58: 10-11

OUR METHOD & MOTIVATION: 

OUR METHOD:

I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”  And I said, “Here am I; send me! –Isaiah 6:8

MICROENTERPRISE-

Microenterprise and access to microfinance is an effective means of helping people in developing countries to help themselves.  We want to leverage our gifts, education and entrepreneurial experience in order to help develop a practical and holistic strategy for sustainable development.  Ideas include:

• Business as Mission (BAM) concepts

• Partnership and business consulting with/for Ethiopian and International businesses.

• Development of local network and opportunities for people and business development.

Giving that multiplies, as you invest in us, we want to invest in others and see that investment multiplied many times over.

When your striving to survive and poverty is a way of life, people’s potential is often buried under those challenges.  It is our goal to stand along side those that are in this environment and equip them with tools for lasting success.  We believe that when even the simplest of opportunities are presented that a powerful transformation begins to take effect and will empower others within the culture towards sustainable development.

OUR MOTIVATION: 

We are compeled into action by the love of Jesus Christ. 1 John 3:16
