Next summer we are headed out on a journey to Africa with visit Ethiopia and Kenya! Our trips provide an opportunity for Mocha Club members and their friends to visit Africa and witness firsthand what giving up a few mochas a month can do, while having a chance to serve the African people.
We will take the next couple of weeks to introduce you each of the spots we will be visiting on our journey!
Last up: our partners at Women at Risk.
Sunday morning we will attend church with our Ethiopian country director, Asrat Gizaw. Attending church in Africa can be a powerful and moving experience. After the service, the team will spend some time talking with Asrat, and learning about the large pastor training programs that he facilitates in Ethiopia.
We will set out early for Nazaret, where one of our Women at Risk facilities is located. The location is outside of the city of Addis Ababa, and will present an opportunity to see a somewhat different side of Ethiopia. Upon arrival, the team will meet with Cherry Friedmeyer, the director of the Women at Risk program. Cherry will give the group a tour of the facility and talk about how the organization came to be. The story showcases how one small effort can turn into what is now a life-changing program.
We will take another day to visit more of the city of Addis Ababa with Asrat as our guide. We will also have the opportunity to visit with some of the teachers and students of the Common Ground Pastors Academy through our parent company, African Leadership.
