We are so excited to be supporting the Lawrence family as they move to Ethiopia to serve as missionaries with SIM.
They will be partnering with Ethiopian Christian opthalmologists to establish a new eye hospital and training center in Addis Ababa. Ethiopia has one of the highest rates of blindess in the world, with over 1.5 million people completely blind. Over 1 million of those cases of blindness can be cured with a simple 10 minute surgery or a small intervention.
We believe that the Lawrences have a unique opportunity to care for both the physical and spiritual needs of Ethiopia. Their training, mentoring and discipling of Ethiopian eye doctors will shape an entire nation for generations.
- Overwhelming physical and spiritual fruit from the outreach in northern Ethiopia.
- Good progress with the planning and renovation of our hospital
- Continued inspiration in our language study during the summer months
- Endurance for Scott in the midst of upcoming travel in East Africa... to overcome fatigue and some recent illness
Special Prayer Request:
Please join us in prayer for new teachers to enter the mission field, both at Bingham Academy and across the world. People around the world will be praying daily at 3:25pm throughout February/March.
