We're excited to be holding a special offering for our friends at Eden Genet Church in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!
Eden Genet Church has been meeting in a small rented facility which is slated for demolition. They have started construction of a facility in a part of the city where there are no evangelical churches. People are attracted to churches in their own neighborhood, as transportation around the city is unreliable and expensive (very few folks in Eden Genet have cars). Construction projects can get complicated, as the government dictates what kind of building must be put on the property, which is all leased from the government. Our brothers and sisters there have made diligent efforts to raise as much of the expense as they can, as they believe God for the completion of the project. At the same time the leaders recognize that the real job of the church is to build disciples, not physical structures, so Eden Genet continues to be a vibrant place of worship and solid teaching and growth. We in the USA have much to learn from our dear friends there about living Christian lives in the midst of difficult circumstances.
We invite you to join us in praying about how you can contribute to what God is doing in Ethiopia!
