It was the smile in their eyes contrasted with the extreme conditions where they sat crouched, gripping babies. I was drawn to want to know the story of women in Ethiopia who make painful and difficult decisions about survival every day.
What might seem so simple and easy for us can change a life somewhere else. Through these animals, children and their families come to a deeper understanding of God’s care for them.
This is Beti’s story of hope. It is the story of a girl in Ethiopia born to look different from those around her. It is a story that begins with rejection–but does not end there.
On Monday and Tuesday this week, the kids at “Kind Hearts” had special visitors from St. Joseph Christian School in St. Joseph, MO. This is the school that visited Kind Hearts for the first time one year ago and committed to providing a fresh-water well at Kind Hearts. Funds have been raised and within the next month or so, when the final permits are approved and stamped, drilling will begin and this school (with 102 kids) will have access to fresh, clean water!
