God’s not looking for capable hands, He’s looking for available ones.

Mission Trip 2007 - By Kathy Stoller

No special talent is required to make a significant impact on children... just a loving compassion for kids! Even so, many service opportunities exist for people who are not directly involved with children, like; construction, painting, sewing, farming, teaching, church ministry, community outreach, medical services, etc.

If you would like to join an existing team for a mission trip, serve as a short-term missionary or lead your own team to our project in Ethiopia, then we can help. Please call or write for more information or to join a scheduled team, simply check out our current trips.

Visiting Ethiopia is like stepping back in time to a culture that is nearly as primitive as it was when Jesus walked the earth some 2,000 years ago. It will be a rare opportunity to see first-hand what life was like so long ago, while ministering and touching the lives of people.

Our mission at Blessing the Children is to ensure that you and your team have a successful mission trip. Your team will work closely with a local church in Ethiopia, where you will form lasting one-on-one relationships, both socially and spiritually. As your team returns for future trips, you will be able to continue developing these relationships and see God work through you in their lives.
