Each day in Ethiopia I am more blessed and my cup truly overflows. Yesterday as we descended down the mountain, I found myself praying for not only the Ethiopians but also for people everywhere. I am more keenly aware now of the enormous need to share the Gospel. I asked God for boldness in sharing the Good News and His answer was to go to Ethiopia with e3Partners. I thought I misunderstood and in fact, carried on several discussions with Him to really be sure. He was sure! Haha!
Being here in Ethiopia has increased my faith.
I have met some amazing people. We are invited in to homes with hospitality that I rarely see at home. What really blows me away is the worship here! I’ve witnessed and participated in worship like I’ve never witnessed before. If we would only worship like this in our churches and our homes.
This is one reason why we need God, for only He can give us a new heart, and replace our self-centeredness with His love. God’s promise is true: “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone” (Ezekiel 36:26).
