Here we go again!

We celebrated!
 We stood silently in AWE. 
We giggled, laughed,  prayed and gave thanks to our All Mighty God,
 and cried at the fact that because of our awesome God,
 the Spirit moving in YOUR hearts and the hard work of Awake and Alive 
it only took 9 months and we were able to reach our (what felt like unattainable) goal!

So what does this mean? 

Because of you and your faithfulness to be broken and Awakened to what breaks the heart of Jesus, Awake and Alive will provide 30 of Ethiopia's most vulnerable children with an education. 

But it is much more then an education. It is the hope for a Brighter Future. 
It is protection form the dangers of street life. 
It is 2 meals a day. 
It is an oasis from the stresses of slum life.  
It is a chance to end the cycle of poverty. 
It is the chance to learn about our Lord and Savior.

What you all have done for these children is unmeasurable. 
It is with a truly Awakened heart that I say,
Thank you! 
I see each one of my children in the eyes of the children in Kechene. God has given that, hard to fathom, vision to me. And so I am set on fire to do whatever it takes to help as many children as possible. 
You see, if it TRULY was my child living in these conditions I would stop at nothing to change it! 
So when I say, "Thank You" it is with SO MUCH MEANING.
Thank you for making this vision a reality!

But as you will notice we are now focusing on fundraising for year #2! 
We are EXCITED to see what ways you all come up with to help!
