If you are a Medical Professional, you can Travel with us. We have several spots open on our June 29-July 7 Medical trip. We are still looking for a nurse and another Physician, NP or PA. For more information please visit our website at http://www.outoftheash.org/mission-trips/ . Our Service Team is full for this summer, thanks so much to those traveling and we look forward to a great trip.
You can help us get the word out about our need for Sponsorship. We currently have 36 students that need a sponsor, whether it be permanent or someone that is just wanting to fill in for a year. It is time that again that we start making decisions about what we can do to help the unsponsored children. We are asking you to share this newsletter and pray with us that we find sponsorship for all 36 of them! For more information about sponsorship please contact Stacy@outoftheashesinc.org.
You can do a fundraiser or a church outreach for Out of the Ashes. Fundraisers can be limited only by your imagination. Get creative. We can help with whatever you need to facilitate a fundraiser. It can be as simple as hosting a pot luck dinner, a scavenger hunt, 5k, maybe even a climbing event! The church outreach is where you can share your experience, tell the OA story and share profiles of kids who need sponsors. Or you can ask for a special offering for OA. For more information about organizing a fundraiser or church outreach for OA you can contact Info@outoftheashesinc.org.
You can pray for our teams that are traveling this summer, our staff and our students that are In Ethiopia. Summertime is a hard time in Korah. All of the kids are home from boarding school (which puts a burden on their families that are trying to feed them), it is rainy season and they miss school. Our staff is overloaded with requests from the students and families for help and we just can’t fill them all.
Our January 2018 Medical Team served over 500 people. We served all of the OA students that needed medical attention and we also got to serve the community. It was an amazing week. Our short term missions are an ongoing support system for our students and the community. It is making an impact far beyond the weeks we spend in Ethiopia.
Sponsorship Program News:
At this time, we have 66 students on our list that will graduate out of our program, within the next 3 months. If you sponsor a child that is on this list we will be sending out information individually.
We are also working on private school options for the students next school year. We are hoping to consolidate our schools down to around 5 (instead of 45). There are many details to work out. As soon as we have concrete information we will pass that along.
