Melkam Gena

Ethiopia recently celebrated Gena (Orthodox Christmas) on January 7th, 2020. We had a wonderful time celebrating with our children, their families, and our staff. Celebrations took place on the eve of Gena – January 6th.

Our staff shared a delicious cake, fresh coffee, and warm conversation, and had a much needed break from the rigor of shaping young minds.

Our students at the BCI Academy dressed up in fun costumes and clothing, performed plays, and sang songs.

Our sponsored children and their families shared a warm meal and fellowship and were visited by a missionary who read from the Bible.

We are so grateful for our sponsors and ministry partners who made this uplifting day possible. It was just what the children and adults alike needed.
