Share My Journey to Ethiopia

Dear Family and Friends,

Ethiopia Fall 2013 is just around the corner. Our theme: “To prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Eph. 4:12

Dr. Phil Walker will be teaching the men’s conferences. I will be teaching women’s conferences: Purpose Driven Life Seminar #5 – Spiritual Gifts.

Week #4 - Blog Post #2 - Share My Journey

“All I want to do is serve;” said my sweet daughter-in-law, Megan, who will be teaching First Aid kit training – we will donate 150 First Aid kits. This has added an additional $2,500.00 to the cost of our trip from Sept. 12 through Sept. 26, 2013.

We appreciate your prayers for planning and for our financial need. (Includes round-trip airline tickets, hotel, meals, in-country transportation, copies of student notes, translators, facility rental and food for attendees.) Please consider sending an extra gift this month to cover Megan and my trip. Total cost: $10,000.00. Earmark: TEAM GIESBRECHT ETHIOPIA FALL 2013. www.ICMUSA.org
