Month of Change- Day 12

Over the past few months we have been asked many times how it is that this work is done in Ethiopia while we live in Louisville.  The answer is that we work with some phenomenal people.  We have so many good staff people, but I want to take a moment to highlight two of them.

Matt talking with Endris (middle) and Yonas.

Endris is the Project Manager for LIA.  The work that has been done with the women and children at Project 1 has been done under his leadership.  He does a wonderful job of caring for the people within his project and investing in not just their physical needs, but their emotional and spiritual needs as well.  We have known Endris for the past several years and we are honored to be partnered on this project.  Also, just yesterday Endris' wife delivered a healthy little baby!  What a gift.

Yonas is the Ethiopian Director for Eyes That See.  He has a bachelor's degree from Addis Ababa University and is currently working on his master's in counseling.  Yonas has been a faithful friend for years and, along with his precious wife and son, is a great addition to our team.  Yonas will continue to keep our licensing up to date, host teams that visit, communicate with the different project sites and represent Eyes That See to anyone who needs our presence.

Please be praying for these men over the next few months as these projects continue to grow under their leadership.  We are so glad to be working with them and the many other staff members as well.  We hope each of you has the pleasure of meeting them someday.
