Ethiopia Fall 2013 : Prepare God's People ~ Africa Rising: Invest in Teaching the African Church ~ Eternal Rewards


Sept 7, 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

Ethiopia Fall 2013 is just around the corner. Our theme: “To prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Eph. 4:12

Dr. Phil Walker will be teaching the Men’s Conferences. I will be teaching Women’s Conferences: Purpose Driven Life Seminar #5 – Spiritual Gifts

                                        Sheryl and Megan prepare for Ethiopia

 “All I want to do is serve;” said my sweet daughter-in-law, Megan, who will be teaching First Aid kit training – we will donate 150 First Aid kits. This has added an additional $2,500.00 to the cost of our trip from Sept. 12 through Sept. 26, 2013.

We appreciate your prayers for planning and for our financial need. (Includes round-trip airline tickets, hotel, meals, in-country transportation, copies of student notes, translators, facility rental and food for attendees.) Please consider sending an extra gift this month to cover Megan and my trip. Total cost: $10,000.00. Earmark: TEAM GIESBRECHT ETHIOPIA FALL 2013.



                                        Africa Rising: ICM 2013 banquet packs a full house

"It is possible to fulfill the great commission in our generation if we do the right things in God's way." —Phil Tuttle, President of Walk Through the Bible speaker at the ICM's Hope of Africa Fundraising Banquet www.icmusa.org
 
 
 
"The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field."  Matt. 9:37, 38
 
 



                             Sheryl, Phil Walker and Painito Ambuka, ICM Burundi Director
                                  tell how God is writing the New Story of Africa.

The New Story of Africa is empowering the African church to become more and more engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission. Won’t you help us by sending an additional financial gift for my ETHIOPIA FALL 2013 TRIP?

If you are able to do so, I will send you a special Thank You with a bookmark about The New Story being written in Africa.

My love and prayers,

Sheryl
