Hello Again from Sunny Ethiopia,
Greetings to all of you from here at the Ethiopia Reaching Beyond Words NGO. We are always we very glad to share with you our ongoing work of ETH RBW NGO.
For the month of February 2020, we have had a great time. Brother Burt visited us, it was such a profitable time with the children in the program and their families. He was sharing with the families about the reality of God by explaining from the Tabernacle, about Eternity. Both Children and their Families were very happy, and we thank God for our Brother’s commitment and his willingness to be part of the mission to Ethiopia. May God bless him and our sister Nancy because of their great help and prayer that helps this work continue. A song the children sang, here is the link to hear it. The words of the song are: The Love of Jesus is so wonderful, the love of Jesus is so wonderful, Oh , Oh wonderful Love, this verse is repeated. So High can’t get over it, so low can’t get under it. Oh the love of Jesus is so wonderful!! https://1drv.ms/v/s!Anosis2iKl6EvDeN7AGd2cCqGABJ?e=RtF9pX
Our Children are continuing their Academic schooling and are in their second semester, our supported widows are continuing with their small businesses with hard work. It’s so rewarding to see them making a living and living sustainably. Currently 5 Widows are supported by Sister Shewaye Yalew, with seed money to start their businesses after they have received the vocational training from Reaching Beyond Words. May God bless her.
All the rest of our work is continuing with progress.
We know that this work would find it difficult to function without your support, therefore we would like to say God bless you for all your Lovely Sacrificial support.
There are two beneficiaries in the program that we thought you might like to meet. There is Yabesira Abereham and Tesefaye Alemu.

Her mother works in different places washing clothes and working on the streets cleaning roads.
