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 1}.

This month marks the one-year anniversary of our time here in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It has been a very emotional year, one that has seen mountaintop experiences and deep valley encounters. So, to try and help others understand the rollercoaster of emotions the past year has presented, I thought it would be fun to do […]
