The Lawrence Family and SIM in Ethiopia

Lawrence Family

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

Prayer Requests:

  • 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.
