Hope Missions Ethiopia

Hope Ethiopia Mission was started in June 2009 with a challenge offered in a Sunday School class to step out of the boat and do something to glorify God.  The first team of 11 people traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in April 2010. There they visited orphanages, a leper colony, tiny remote villages and made life long connections. While in Ethiopia, lives were changed. What began as a mission trip has become a mission focus of church.

The long term goal is to continue these relationships, build new ones and become full time sponsors to help relieve some of the burden of the church there in Ethiopia.  We plan to have teams travel yearly to sustain the relationships and help build others. God has a special plan for the people of Ethiopia, and we are blessed that He allows us to be a part of it.
