Update from Karin:

All you prayer warriors, please pray for our 2 year old Miss N who had a seizure this morning and had to be rushed to the hospital. She needs an urgent CT- scan and there is no working CT-scan in Shire, so due to the urgency and severity of the seizure we have decided that we are going to take her to Addis Ababa, as she is known and we don't want to waste time in Mekelle as there may be a shortage of medical supplies there as well.... Please pray as Carlos will take her and Biniam who will drive them on the unpredictable road to Mekelle. Pray that we will get a flight to Addis Ababa today. Pray for all of us as we are so worried. But we know all are safe in God's Hands.
Update: Our car has reached Axum safely and they will keep us up to date on their progress whenever they have phone connection.

Update From Grace Village:

“A big hug for all of you friends who have been faithfully praying for us! This 6 month long rollercoaster ride has been something I had never ever expected to happen and no end in sight yet unless God Himself puts a stop to it. God has protected us and He is now providing us with wonderful financial support so we can help the hurting people around us. We have provided food support to 2000 people, have reopened our rehabilitation center for 50 children who need temporary care, We have taken the protection responsibility for one of the 16 centers for displaced people where we are currently looking for a solution for 30 elderly people who sleep outside (we have had quite a bit of early rain) and we help 200 destitute families with small business skills training. We have helped already 5 babies with baby formula and are assessing 2 babies today for potential admission in Grace Village. The needs and hurts here are more than overwhelming andwe work with our own hearts being broken by all that is going on but in the knowledge that God is our strength. Keep praying for peace!”


Update Today from Abraham's Oasis:

" "Could you possibly take another 200?" Asked the overwhelmed government official. The assessment was done in Kebele 03 for 800 people. The team decided that another 200 would be possible.
Abraham's Oasis started last week to provide food for one thousand people living in Neighbourhood 03. Fifteen kilos of Millet grain, one litre of oil and Shire flour (High protein, pulse based flour favoured by Ethiopians). The team buy the supplies in the market and distribute it to the families who have been so deprived because of the fighting in Tigray Region of northern Ethiopia.
"I was told to bring my baby to you..." said the weeping father, "This baby is all I have left, his mother died because we could not get help..." On assessing the situation the team realised that this father simply needed support for him to care for his baby, so, baby milk formula and requirements for baby care were given and support will carry on for six months. A mother whose milk supply had dried up asked for support too. We need Baby milk formula, available in Addis Ababa, one thousand kilomtres away. We can buy supplies in Shire town near to us.
The children are not back in school yet, because schools and colleges are filled with one thousand internally displaced people (IDP). Abraham's Oasis will take 200 unaccompanied minors from among these internally displaced people who have been abused.
Thank you for your generous donations for these projects. "
