What's Ahead

Hi and welcome to the blog of our next trip to Ethiopia. We are all very excited and on the team this time is :

Murray, Emma, Abeba & Matilda Jensen , Andrea & Wayne Dupuy, Josh & Corinne Knight, Aaron Shanahan, Ray & Barbara Jensen, Debbie Robertson, Noel & Shelley Woodward, Chris & Suzie Overell

We have already been meeting as a team and had our first large fundraising event on Saturday raising over $1400 at a Car Wash to go towards blessing the 70+ children we sponsor through Compassion in Addis Alem, Ethiopia.

Our plans so far are to spend at least one week in Addis Ababa the capital. Driving out daily to the Compassion Church Partnership that we have begun with a project in Addis Alem. We intend to get to know all the children we sponsor from here at Catalyst and begin to build a relationship with the church leaders to learn from them how we can best support them into the future.

We then plan to head up to the Grace Centre in Bahir Dar to serve with Dee, Andrew and the team there helping them in any way we can.

On our way home we hope to stop in Bangkok and ride an elephant and maybe even do a little shopping :)

Please join us in praying for our path to be mapped out by God and that He would take us where He wants us to go.

Keep you posted and thanks for following along.
