Thanks so much for your partnership and congratulations on a job well done!
It is always nice to be able to take a project off our list—that is, when we remove it due to successful work! For several years we have been connecting many churches to the work John and Gwen Haspels have been doing among the Suri people in Ethiopia. As Presbyterian missionaries the Haspels have been working in partnership with the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekaane Yesus (EECMY). Their outreach has involved church planting, health and development work, road construction, education, and other facets of sharing the love of Jesus in tangible ways. Over the next year most of this ministry is being turned over completely to the EECMY, while the clinic is being turned over to the Ethiopian government.
We are thankful for the ways God has worked in this ministry. A fledgling church has emerged among the Suri, and many are experiencing God in real and powerful ways. At the same time, the EECMY still has a lot to do to as it seeks to continue the work. Pray with us that the emerging church will continue to grow, that the Suri will be transformed in ever larger numbers by the grace of God in Jesus Christ, and that the EECMY will be faithful in this ministry. Pray also for the Haspels in continuing work with the nearby Baale people.
Many Presbyterians have supported this Surma work over the years, through prayers as well as finances and even some field visits. We are thankful to God for your support of the Suri outreach as well as partnering with us in other frontier missions where God is working around the world.
Grateful for you and thankful for your support,
