You can help change a future generation in Ethiopia. We’re seeing it happen every day. In fact, Meseret*, a young single mother in Ethiopia, raising two beautiful children on her own, will tell you herself that your prayers for the ministry of LSM and your financial gifts have completely changed their lives:
“I feel empowered. I am now relying on God to lead my path and am
making wiser decisions. I now have a support system to encourage
and help me. My children are receiving a good education and,
because of LSM, they have the support they need to complete it!”
Meseret’s own single mother knew how important it was to get an education. Somehow, she managed to scrape enough together for Meseret to attend school, even though it meant 4 hours travel every day!
When she finished 8th grade, Meseret had to go to the city to attend high school, a rare opportunity for a young woman in her village. But when she got there, a series of poor decisions, difficultly finding resources and little support left her with two small children, an unfinished high school career and living in severe poverty, at the young age of twenty-nine.
With our staff and church support, her family has been introduced to a personal, saving relationship with Jesus. She went through small business training and is now growing her own business, selling spices in the market. And her children are looking ahead with great hope.
With every prayer, with every gift and with every introduction to Jesus, lives like Meseret’s and her children are changing forever.
You are a part of this. Your prayers and your giving does make a difference.
