Global Impact: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Opportunity Overview

Our team will be serving with the staff of Life in Abundance International Ethiopia (LIA-ET) in the capital city of Addis Ababa (and possibly another city called Adama) where we will encourage, support and learn about LIA's holistic ministry approach. LIA exists to mobilize the local Church to restore health, renew hope, and inspire lasting transformation for the world’s most vulnerable children and families. We are excited to return to existing project sites such as the CHE projects, ZOE Medium Clinic, Leprosy Mission School and more to continue building on past relationships; we will spend time in worship and prayer with the LIA staff; and this year we are also excited about leading a small conference or workshops for local church leaders on various topics (to be discussed). 

This trip will be highly relational with Ethiopian community leaders and families – a love for diverse cultures, bridging language gaps and flexibility are a must!
