Sullivan Family Reports from Ethiopia!

Last week, a precious family (Mark and Bridget Sullivan) traveled to Ethiopia to pick up their new son, Eyob.  Into the Streets of Ethiopia was blessed to be able to send a computer and office equipment with the Sullivan's {hand-delivered to Robel with Children's Future Ethiopia.}  What a great example of demonstrating the love of Jesus! 


"We asked Robel if we could come and meet with his kids (with him) and he said we could---so we got to go with him on Friday afternoon. Mark really liked one of the boys, Samuel.  When we went shopping earlier in the week, we met some of the boys.  Mark bought some gum from Samuel and talked with him for awhile and he even gave Mark a gift!! He gave him his cross necklace. It was really so very sweet--and I know Mark was so very touched.  We were excited to meet the children of Children's Future Ethiopia."

It is evident that this family had a great time with Robel and the kids!  Take a look for yourself!

The boy on the right is Birhanu!  Look how well he is doing!  Thank you Jesus!


Amazing Robel!  

As God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with 
compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience (Colossians 

 Thank you Sullivan Family!

$6 FOR 1

Every six seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes.

1 2 3 4 5 6

What if you were told the dirty, sticky change from the bottom of your purse or your car floor could make a difference in the life of a child?  The change that we so carelessly toss in an empty drawer could be enough to fill a child's belly.  How many pennies do we pass by on the street?  It's only a penny, right?  Those wasted pennies and dirty thrown-away-dimes could add up to enough to provide a meal to a child living in poverty.  A child that is starving from malnutrition.  30 cents is all it takes to feed a child a hot meal.  $6 will provide a child one meal a day for an entire month.

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

James 2:8 "Yes indeed, it is good when you truly obey our Lord's command, "You must love and help your neighbors just as much as you love and take care of yourself."

Into the Streets of Ethiopia is excited to offer a new campaign entitled, $6 FOR 1.  

 The challenge is simple!  Can you and your family gather enough change (in a 30 day time frame) to help feed the hungry in Ethiopia?  This is an excellent way for parents to engage their children in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.   Saving all those loose pennies, counting them at the end of the month, is a practical way of sharing and caring for others.    Create a fun place for your kids to drop their coins into.  Here is a great example:

$6 FOR 1, will be an on-going effort in feeding the children involved with Adoption Ministry of YWAM-Ethiopia.  We will provide updates on the feeding program in Addis Ababa as well as reports from YOU!  What is your family doing to make a difference for 1?  We want photos of you in action!
