A Christmas Blessing

Genet and Yohannes Mamo are teenage siblings who have been through a lot together. They live with their mother in a very small house that is in poor condition. Their mother is blind and cannot provide care for them. Genet and Yohannes do all of the chores, including the cooking. There is no father present since he left the family when their mother accepted Christ. The children are resilient and do the best they can, but as they grow it is getting harder for them to make do in their current living arrangements.

Their uncle donated land for them to build an additional room on their house. Unfortunately, they have not had the finances to build the addition. What a blessing it was when a donor stepped up and offered to cover the cost of this addition. We know that having more space in the house and improved living conditions will make a great impact on the quality of life for this family and we look forward to sharing this wonderful Christmas blessing with them!
