$50,000

We did it! This past week our youth group and Church met their goal and raised the $50,000 they needed to build a school in a village in southern Ethiopia. We had hoped that they might be able to reach it by the end of 2010 and here we are in the middle of the year. I am so excited and proud of all the efforts and creativity that went into this school building process. Our next goal will be to raise about $9,000 a year to pay the teachers salaries in the school. Each teacher only makes about $150 a month. I love the way God led us to Ethiopia and to adoption through education.
