It's been a few months since we rolled out news of our plans to start a street project in Ethiopia. You can read more about the inspiration and intention behind the project on our Ethiopia Project page.
The latest developments are that this August & September, four street ministers from the Aleme's ministry in Addis Ababa will visit us in Nairobi to observe our model of outreach, recovery, and equipping. They will mentor under our staff and learn from our successes and failures over the past 20 years. They will return to Addis Ababa to start implementing what they learned.
In the new year, we will send two of our own team to Addis Ababa in January and two in February to help advise and coach the Ethiopian ministers in creating a ministry that fits the street context of Addis.
It is our hope and prayer that the Made in the Streets Ethiopia team will be able to stand on our shoulders and reach even greater levels of success and transformation than we have seen in Kenya. For now, we ask for your prayers and support as we cultivate and support this much needed street ministry.
More updates to come!
When you do this for 20 years, you're bound to pick up a few stories and lessons along the way. Thoughts, impressions, news, and highlights from our staff, visitors, donors, students and alumni.
