Thank you so much for your support. It is really making a difference. Larry returned from Ethiopia in East Africa in June. He was gone for about 11 weeks (10 weeks in Ethiopia, with a 5 day stopover in DC). He had a very busy, but fruitful trip. Below are the details of the trip. The newsletter is mostly photos of what God was doing while he was there.
Helping Widows and Fatherless
Over the past 4 years our ministry has been partnering with another VBC graduate who ministers to 200 widows and fatherless children in Ethiopia. We have helped buy school uniforms for the children and other needed items for them and their families. On Easter Sunday we blessed the 200 plus with a wonderful Easter meal. In addition to that, children were awarded with various practical prizes and awards. Everyone in attendance was thrilled. We were also able to help about 40 widows get started in small businesses. We were also able to help 10 of the boys start shoe shine businesses. We are thanking God for all of his wonderful grace for this provision.
Over the summer months Larry’s ministry schedule has included ministry in Washington DC, California, Louisiana and Oklahoma. In August he has ministry in New York and Oklahoma. In late August and early September he and our daughter Larissa will travel and minister together in Mississippi and Louisiana.

Larry is scheduled to minister again at Victory Bible College Ethiopia in mid-September. Airfare for the trip is between $1,400.00 and $1,900.00. If you would like to help with this expense or with any of the ongoing outreaches we do there, or with any of his other mission trip expenses, or with our general ministry support, here is some information for you.
