God is opening doors. So much so, that “Open Doors” has become this year’s Global Outreach theme at Jewish Voice. One of the doors opening to us is in Ambo Meda, Ethiopia. We first learned of this area during last year’s Medical Outreach to Enfranz, Ethiopia, when several hundred people from Ambo Meda were bussed in to receive care at that Clinic. Our Global Outreach Director and others noted that the need for medical care among the people of Ambo Meda is even greater than that of neighboring areas. 

That’s why we were determined to bring a Medical Outreach to this region. There may be as many as 10,000 Beta Israel Jewish people within reach of the Clinic we are conducting there in two weeks. We are praying to meet not only the physical needs of these dear people but also their spiritual needs.

Walking through this new door is exciting, and we know that we need prayer – prayer for effective ministry and the elimination of opposition. Please join us in praying for the Ambo Meda, Ethiopia, Medical Outreach. Sign up for a prayer slot to be part of the daily prayer covering, and pray along with us using the day-by-day requests below.

May this truly be a time of effective ministry in which You show Yourself victorious over all opposition and make Your name great. In Yeshua’s own mighty name, AMEN.
