Inquire about the trip

We recently learned that the U.S. State Department has ordered all non-essential embassy people to leave Ethiopia due to the on-going civil war, for this reason we have postponed our mission to Ethiopia indefinitely. We will keep up with news from Ethiopia and when it looks like things are once again secure there, we will look at returning. Please keep our friends in Ethiopia in your prayers.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

2020 Ethiopia

Our teams provide a 5 day out-patient medical clinic to the people of the Alelitu area. The medical clinics serve as a point of contact between the church and the local people. It gives the local church credibility not only as Christians but as providers of a valuable service to their neighbors. Our clinics are typically staffed by physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists and other medical professionals. In addition we need non-medical team members to staff optical testing stations and to assist in preparing prescriptions for the patients.

We will also be providing high quality training conferences for local church leaders.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

Working with the largest evangelical domination in Ethiopia insures that once we are gone the church plant will continue to receive the support it needs.

Ethiopia currently permits entry to most international visitors who present a negative COVID-19 test. However, our local host recommends waiting until late this year or early next year to schedule a trip in order to avoid their rainy season. We are hopeful that we will be able to schedule a trip later in 2021 or early 2022. Please check back here or at our website, www.hishealinghands.com, for updates.
