Change for CHANGE

I wasn't the only one to go on a missions trip this summer.
My sister Amber went on a 10 day trip to Ethiopia to work with an organization called “Change for Change.” I didn't know much about the organization until Amber came back from her trip, but I was floored by the story of how Change for Change began.

A young Ethiopian woman would pass young poverty-stricken boys living under a bridge everyday. She wanted to help them, so she began saving spare change to feed and cloth the young boys. Over time, this small act of kindness turned into a non-profit organization that helped provide living arrangements for all of the homeless boys.
Amber was able to see where the boys would be living and meet all of them. I know it was an amazing experience for her to meet and spend time with the boys. Beza International supports this ministry and the organization has ongoing financial needs to support the 30 young boys they are housing.

If you would like to help, donations can be sent to:
