Why Ethopia?

Listed below are just a few reasons we are broken for Ethiopia, and have decided to adopt from there. Please Pray for these children!

1. There are five million orphans in a country less than twice the size of Texas

2. Between 60-150 million kids live on the streets

3. Only 24% of homes have access to safe drinking water

4. Half the children will never attend school, and 88% will never attend secondary school

5.One in ten children die before their first birthday

Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us resposible to act. Proverbs 24:12
