The Ethiopia Initiative's HIV/AIDS committee is
excited to embark on the first trip to visit projects sponsored
by this part of the initiative. A medical team working with one
of the partner projects will overlap with our trip and we will
be able to do some work together. We are hoping to make contact
with all six projects currently sponsored by MPPC. The projects
are located in Addis Ababa, and in the Wonji/Nazret region. The
projects focus on prevention, education, homecare, orphan care,
and microenterprise for sustainability. Local churches are an
integral part of each project.
The team is also excited to visit a World Vision Area Development
Project in the Nazret area, to see if MPPC could be involved in
this type of work as well. We are looking forward to forming relationships
and participating in the different ministries focused on those
with HIV/AIDS. As we will be in Ethiopia over Easter, we also
hope to worship with Ethiopians for this important holiday.
We have come to serve, to give and to illuminate the love of Christ
in the fullness of God's ever flowing grace as we are His workmanship.
