UPDATE: Urgent Need for Safe Housing

Back in June, we shared a story about a 13 year-old girl named Ferehiwot Sisay, who was living in extreme poverty in a house far from her school. Her family could barely fit in the cramped, one-room home they were living in, and were unable to fully participate in the community due to their long commute. We reached out for help, and our donor family responded in a big way.

We are happy to report that Ferehiwot and her family are settled into their new home. As you can see from the photos, their living conditions have greatly improved. The house has two rooms, and features a cement floor. This is a much more sanitary situation than the previous house, which had a dirt and grass floor.

Our missionaries visited the home last week and reported that Ferehiwot and her mother are thrilled with their new living arrangements. There is enough space for a bedroom and a living area, and there is a more secure front door and window. The house is much sturdier and cleaner, and the proximity to school will make it easier for Ferehiwot to attend.

Thank you to our wonderful friends who made this possible. And praise God, from whom all blessings flow!
