Will you pray for us as we go to Inchini, Ethiopia, for the first time? In just a couple weeks, Jewish Voice will be conducting a Medical Outreach there to bless the Gefat Jewish people and their neighbors. “Gefat” means “blowers” and is a reference to the story that centuries ago, when they came to the area, they blew the shofar as they traveled. May the Gefat people hear a sound in the Spirit like a mighty trumpet blast, calling them to come to the Clinic, receive care and life in the name of Yeshua, and worship Him.

Good news from Gutu and excitement for Inchini!

We can’t say it enough: We need your prayers for each Outreach to be successful. Here are daily prayer points to help you pray in step with this strategic Outreach in Inchini. Please also consider being part of covering this whole Outreach with 24/7 prayer by taking a time slot to pray from home. Click here
