Scripture encourages us to make the most of every opportunity considering the times in which we live (Ephesians 5:16). In October, we are doing just that by visiting two separate areas in Ethiopia to conduct two different types of Medical Clinics, one right after the other. We will begin with an Outreach in Alamata and then travel to Jijiga for a shorter Clinic focused solely on dental and eye care.

Both areas are new to us, and these will be our first Clinics there. We know that despite these two different locations, each with their own setting, language and people group, the Lord knows and deeply loves each of the individuals who live there.

We are praying for a double blessing for this Outreach "double-header!" Would you multiply the prayer covering by adding your intercession to ours? Together we can make the most of this opportunity!

Would you like to be part of our hour-by-hour prayer covering for these strategic Clinics in Ethiopia?
