Impact in Ethiopia
Northgate's passion for helping people become who God purposed them to be isn’t just creating a buzz in Ramsey. No, this mission extends far into the world around us with a number of partnerships, one being Debre Zeit Mekane Yesus Church in Ethiopia through Compassion International.
Did you know Northgate funded a set of resource rooms for our partner's school which were completed in March 2013...way before our own building was established here in Ramsey?
In addition, in 2016, we sponsored a project where 15 women were provided weaving machines to craft authentic clothing for tourists, producing income would support their families. That drive proved so successful that Northgate was also able to contribute funds to build a playground for the kids! Check out this final report!
Last week, I was the fortunate recipient of two other awesome letters from Ethiopia. The first was from a small boy my family sponsors at our partner church. He told me how much he enjoys swimming and that he loves knowing we pray for him. The second letter was from a young lady we also sponsor. To close her correspondence, she wrote “goodbye, my sweeties!”, which made me giggle and smile all day long. We are so blessed by these kids.
Be encouraged. You really are helping people become who God purposed them to be!
