A Great Missions Family

We are excited to announce that we are now a part of the great missions family of Global Outreach International (GO).

Don’t worry, our ministry hasn’t changed. We are doing the same thing with the same people. we are still working with The Forsaken Children (TFC) to support their partner ministry in Ethiopia, Onesimus. We primarily support Onesimus through the Kota Ganate Ag. Project, which is a small farm that we helped to start.

We will now have a full-fledged, experienced missionary sending organization behind us. We, along with TFC, believe that our new affiliation with GO will give us the support we need to take our vision even further. There are tangible and intangible benefits to being part of a sending organization such as Global Outreach. In a practical sense they will handle things such as mailing newsletters and other mailings, manage our monthly support and be a stateside contact for supporters.  We also are able to take part in their group health insurance. From a more spiritual and emotional side, being part of the GO missions family provides us with a connection to other GO missionaries (and their experience), prayer support and encouragement. These are all things that help us on the field so we can focus our attention and energy on the mission we have been called to.

Global has been helping missionaries share the love of Jesus for more than 40 years. Global sends 100% of every gift to the missionary in the field. As an accredited member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability their integrity is above reproach. As veteran missionaries themselves, the leadership of Global understands the unique needs and challenges faced by the missionaries they serve. Their core values include; evangelism, discipleship, relationships, and integrity. To learn more please visit: www.globaloutreach.org.

Thank you for taking the time to keep up with us on this blog. If you don’t currently receive our newsletters please email your mailing address and other contact information to jrb428@gmail.com so that you can stay even more informed and pray for us more effectively.

Apple Orchard

We now have an apple and pear orchard with more than 1500 trees covering around 9 acres of land.

Chickens before and after

The chicken hatchery has officially started, also, with our first hatch of chicks on February 6, 2014. We have two groups of local farmers who are currently receiving training and technical support through the farm so that they can start their own poultry operations once our chicks are available.

Our primary ministry is one of empowerment, which we accomplish through agriculture.

We helped start the farm to make sure that Onesimus ministries will be able continue serving kids like these for a long time to come.
