Children of Awassa, Ethiopia (Tullo)

Today we have committed to the Lord and to ourselves to make a difference in the lives of children at the Tullo carepoint in Awassa, Ethiopia. After returning from Ethiopia, Wendy and I have felt called to do "something" about what we witnessed when we were there. Although we are capable of nothing in and of ourselves, we can do all things through Him who strengthens us. Through prayer and seeking the Lord's will, we have come in contact with the Bestful's who have recently started Starved 4 Hope (a non-profit organization). They, like us, have recently adopted from Ethiopia and have felt called to action. Starved 4 Hope is responsible for finding sponsors for all 168 children at the Tullo carepoint as well as raising the necessary funds to complete much needed capital projects at the carepoint such as putting in a well, or building schools.

The current need is to find sponsors for all 168 children at the carepoint. Wendy and I are committed to help find these generous & loving people who will make a difference in the life of a child or children half way around the world. Sponsorship will enrich the childs life by meeting their; physical, emotional, & spiritual needs. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us by sponsoring a child today! The cost of sponsorship is $34 / mo, but the benefits to the child and your family will far outweigh this small price.

Please contact us at wjwalz@hotmail.com to find out more information. The website for Starved 4 Hope is http://starved4hope.org/ . All funds are funneled through Hope Chest and their website is http://www.hopechest.org/ .

We are so excited to see the Lord work through this new opportunity!

God Bless,

Derek & Wendy Walz
