During a trip December 1st through December 19th the NALC Mission Director Gemechis Buba will be setting out to visit with, pray with the people of Ethiopia that were impacted by terrorist attacks that occurred in the spring of 2011. Rev Buba will be sharing his time and God’s Word with evangelists and congregations teaching and whitnessing to the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
On this mission trip Rev. Buba will also be carrying with him a duffle bag full of dresses that were sewn by the members of Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Abington, PA. These dresses, crafted from pillow cases, will be delivered to one of the many orphanages throughout Ethiopia that care for little girls in need.
You will be able to support this mission locally through 19 Days of Prayer. The NALC is coordinating with local congregations to lift Rev Buba, and the people of Africa up in prayer. Each day during the trip NALC congregations will be called to participate in an time of intentional prayer. The focus will be one of security, hope, and infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you for saying yes to praying for Gemechis as he travels to Ethiopia. He will be gone from November 29th to December 20th. During his time he will be traveling to teach and preach at a conference tour on the Western Border, visiting congregations burned out this spring/summer, doing two conferences in Addis Ababa (the capital), and meeting with leadership of the EECMY. Please pray for the Spirit to use him as he teaches and preaches, for safety and protection as he and the party travels, for wisdom during the meetings with EECMY, and for his family while he is away.
Below is prayer team schedule and a brief description of what is scheduled on that day.
