Hope for Children
Fundraiser: Kristen

"If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion--how can God's love be in that person? Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions". 1 John 3:17-18 (NLT)

This summer, I had the amazing opportunity to visit southern Ethiopia, where I got to see first hand the amazing work that has been completed since our involvement with Glimmer of Hope over the last 3 years!  Thanks to the outpouring of love and support from our amazing family and friends (and friends of friends!) tens of thousands of lives have been changed forever!  I got to see families drinking fresh, clean water!  Children were learning in brightly lit, dry and furnished classrooms.  Hundreds of lives have been saved because of the first ever ambulance in this area and our maternity clinic was close to completion.  Women will finally have a separate and safe place to deliver their babies!

During my visit, our next project became very clear as we visited the Tercha hospital.  The children that I saw were having to share a building and worst of all air space with patients who had TB, HIV and other diseases.  These children are the most at-risk group as they are suffering from malnutrition and illness.  They are in desperate need of a separate place to receive care and get healthy!  HOPE FOR CHILDREN campaign was born that day!  I pray that you will be blessed by all that has already been accomplished in this area and want to continue to join our family in bringing hope and health to the children of Tercha!

During my visit, I had the opportunity to spend time with Israel, the head of Dawro zone where our projects have been completed.  This man loves his people and was so very grateful for all that has been done to change lives.  During a special lunch we talked about how our families were now forever connected.  I told him we were there because of love, a Christ like love that compells us to share that love with others.  He said such a profound thing after that, he told me "Thank you Kristen, for showing love in such a practical way".

Please join us in continuing to show love in a practical way and help us build a pediatric center in rural Ethiopia!

Forever grateful, Kristen
