For several years, the WOGM Global Christmas Initiative has blessed the children of Guatemala with new shoes and school supplies. This year, we will focus on the country of Ethiopia. There is a great hunger for the Word there, along with many needs for women and children in crisis.
For many years, I’ve been connected with an Ethiopian pastor named Gabe who has overseen a new translation of the Bible. Prior to this new translation, there had not been a Bible in the Tigrinian language for 1500 years, making it next to impossible for pastors to teach the Word.
The translation is now complete and many Bible have been printed and distributed. But there are still 100,000 pastors who do not have a copy of the Bible. We believe God is asking us to answer the call to give generously and get new Bibles to these pastors.
Our 2018 WOGM Global Christmas Initiative will be to purchase Bibles for Ethiopia. For only $5, you can provide a brand new Bible to a pastor in his native language. For $25, you can provide a new Bible and training for a pastor so he can more effectively minister the Word.
Gabe also oversees a program which provides care for widows and rape victims. This program provides lodging, food, and medicine for these women in crisis. The program also provides emotional and spiritual guidance to help these women emerge victorious after such heartache.
In November, a WOGM Global team will travel to Ethiopia to assist with training pastors, distributing new Bibles, and ministering to the women in the widow and rape victim program. We know God is going to bless this trip, but we need your help securing support.
