Meet our new in-country director

This land is sacred. All land is, in reality, sacred ground upon which we live, work, play, dine, and fellowship with God and our neighbor. However, for me, it has always been easier to see the sacred in the midst of the ordinary, here, on this patch of ground in Ethiopia. Currently I am bumping […]

What Happens Next?

I feel as if we can take a collective sigh of relief, as this has been a long journey for all of us. We cannot thank our Street Team enough for your patience, endurance, and sacrifices to see this seed of a dream become a reality. Because of you, today, five young boys in Addis […]

.Our Year from the Inside Out {Part 2}.

At the one-year anniversary of our time here in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia we thought it would be fun to review our journey through the lens of the popular Pixar movie, Inside Out. If you missed part one, you can find it here. If you are not familiar with the movie, I will outline the basic […]

.Breathe In, Breathe Out.

I sat down at a local Starbucks and looked up, the scene was so different from where I had found myself for the past 8 months. I had to make an emergency trip to America and found some time between it all to sneak in some meetings with my Pastor. I had seen him the […]
