For centuries, the Beta Israel of Gondar and the Gefat of Woliso have endured persecution for their “felasha” or “foreigner” status among Ethiopians. Now, these poverty-stricken Jewish communities are in desperate need of medical, eye, and dental care. Jewish Voice Ministries (JVMI) offer medical outreaches where the Jewish community can receive free medical and dental care. The outreaches are also opportunities for JVMI to bring the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus) to help them understand that those who place their faith in Israel's Messiah will never disown or separate themselves from their Jewish race and Judaic heritage.
We will be partnering with Jewish Voice Ministries reaching the people in Ethiopia. We will be working with others nationwide to meet their physical needs and introducing them to their Messiah. We will be serving the people of Ethiopia through free medical, eye, and dental care as well as providing water filtration devices and educating the people the importance of clean water and hygiene to help reduce the spread of disease. Patients are invited into a prayer room where they have the opportunity to receive compassionate prayer and hear the Gospel of Jesus.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Our short-term trips provide opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Our belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of our churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.
For those of you who have not gotten involved, we hope this will be the year you choose to begin a lifestyle of service. And to those who are serving, we just want to say thank you. You are the reason the mission is being accomplished.
