Send Korina To Ethiopia
Organized by: Korina Zimmerman
EVENT DATE Oct 30, 2014
To our friends and loved ones,
This could be taking you by surprise – she’s going to Ethiopia? I was a little surprised myself when I found out I was chosen to go. With two little ones at home this decision was not an easy one. But when I heard that an organization called New Covenant Foundation, was doing an all-women vision trip with my home church LifeCenter Oct 30-November 12, I knew that was where I was supposed to be. I’ve always had a heart to travel and learn about other people while investing in their lives and loving on them. This seems like a great way to do that in obedience to God.
There will be eighteen of us women ranging from the ages of 14-70yrs old going on this trip. Although our main focus is on encouraging and showing the people of Ethiopia we are thinking and praying for them, we are so excited to be meeting up with CHE (Community Health Evangelism) while there. CHE helps the people in a community identify their needs, evaluate their God-given resources and find solutions to improve their situations. We will be focusing on women’s health through CHE and will be able to come along side women and their families to learn from them while lifting them up in prayer and encouragement. We will also be visiting the coffee fields of Dominion Trading Coffee, which is where Life Center and many other places purchase their coffee.
This trip is an act of obedience for my family and me. We invite you to partner with us in the adventure. Please pray for the people of Ethiopia, my team in preparation and health through out the duration of the trip and also my family, as I am gone. You are our greatest allies, the body of Christ! Also, please pray about making a financial contribution. We are trusting God will provide the funds and perhaps that will happen through some of you. The trip will cost $3500. In any case, we are excited and blessed to include you in this adventure!
