Those who work on Shine On The Darkness project as coordinator, volunteers … need to focus on the love of Jesus and showing Jesus kindness to all communities. Introduction “Whatever you did to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing unto me!” ~Matthew 25:35-40 Our work remains focused on the most vulnerable and poor living conditions, in all part of Ethiopia. We continue to maintain the personal volunteer’s involvement that has become the trademark for our vision. The unique selection/assessment process for beneficiaries to join our programs ensures we continue to select those individual who are the poorest of the poor and at the lowest levels of the community. We constantly challenge ourselves to be faithful followers of Jesus in our relationships and jobs. The upward and inward aspects of our life together provide us with the resources to reach out effectively to the world as the hands and feet of Jesus and to welcome people into a life-giving relationship with the Lord. In the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1, we read, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” For Ethiopian and Us team, 2020 was a time to see the poorest part of Ethiopian communities in selected areas. These highlights in this report however, serve to help you celebrate the goodness of God and to provide an awareness of where you yourselves can become involved in. We look forward to what God has in store for us. This ministry to the community is supported through the individual who share their meal for poor communities in Ethiopia (Shine on the darkness or impacting families beyond COVID).
