Our team of 7 women are spending 11 days in Ethiopia, ministering to widows, teen girls and the children in our orphanages.
Tuesday was a day spent in the village of Tede (Teh' day). In this little community the people farm for a living. Most of the farms are small subsistence farms and the people are poor. The outreach to Tede is done from the Orphans and Widows’ Home and seeks to bring relief to the very poorest of the poor. The orphanage director, Tezera, was raised in this village, and her sister’s husband is the only pastor there. Youth With A Mission’s goal is to support at least ten widows and ten children in Tede. Most of our sponsored children live here and our team hoped to visit each one. Here are some pictures taken last year during another visit to Tede:
