New Hope for a New Year

 As we all know, 2020 has been an extremely challenging year. We have all experienced many uncertain times.  Despite all of this, God has continued to faithfully guide our family and Haddis Ministries  as we work to empower the beautiful children and families in our programs. 

So many times in our lives God has called us to step out for Him in times or circumstances that didn't make sense.  This year was no different. Launching a new project in the capital city of Addis Ababa to support an additional 80 children during a pandemic may seem a little crazy, but that's just what God has asked us to do.

And he's provided so far every step of the way because as 1 Thessalonians 5:24 says, "He who calls you is faithful, and he shall surely do it."

  Thus far, the Lord has provided all of the necessary supplies, staff and tutors to get this project started and 80 kids are now receiving tutoring three days a week in math and English as well as character and biblical training along with nutritionally dense snacks and medical care.

These are the beautiful children we now have the privilege to find sponsors for.

All of these kids attend a government school in Addis Ababa.  Attending this program provides them with quality tutoring to help them succeed in their classes in the hopes that they will one day be able to attend university.  It also serves the purpose of keeping them off the streets and out of the many dangers that they are at risk of encountering.  They know that there is hope for their futures and that there are people who care about them.  Their bodies and minds are nourished and most importantly, the are learning about the life giving love of Jesus. 

Here our kids are receiving their tutorial materials and going through orientation.

For just $38 a month, you can become a sponsor and help us continue to provide these services to children like 14 year old Tsinat.

Tsinat, whose name means "endurance," is one of our teen girls who is dreaming big. She loves music and wants to be a scientist. For girls like Tsinat, education is vitally important.  Without a quality education, many girls end up in prostitution, early marriage and motherhood and a life of poverty.

Your $38 per month gives a child like seven year old Kiduse a chance to reach his dreams of becoming a pilot.  The tutoring, nutritious snacks and medical care he receives give him a chance to grow up healthy and able to focus on school in a safe environment. 

Sponsorship is life changing.  

We've personally seen the difference that having a caring sponsor makes for a child.  

And the child's life is not the only one that will be changed.

The gift of sponsorship is full circle, blessing both the child and the sponsor family. 

 It has been one of our life's greatest joys.

So give hope in this new year 
and become a Haddis Sponsor today

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13
