I sincerely apologize as it been TOO long. Due to COVID-19 I've been down for the count for several weeks now. Just to keep it simple, just pray for me as this post is about finally getting WIFI! Please check our Facebook Page, and Instagram for latest updates as well.
As you can see we are FINALLY able to video chat! We completed our FIRST weekly virtual meeting this Sunday. The mothers and children are going to meet every Sunday, in-person completing their weekly face to face contact. In between Sundays, Lewi, our tutor will be calling the girls for English prep and homework help several times throughout the week. Nigist will also be calling the women once week to set life goals and overall progress.
Despite the pandemic, thankfully we've been able to send monthly support and provide much-needed help! Emabet recently delivered her new baby girl on 8/21/2020 and her name is Bethelem. While she is currently on maternity leave, Mekdes will be employed as a housekeeper.
We've also been fortunate enough to have a wifi bet installed in our compound, and we just pay our data charges! This is really amazing because now I can facetime with them frequently, send over resources, and communicate more effectively. We have also been bless with being able to purchase a new iPhone and it will be sent over as soon as I travel back to Ethiopia after COVID-19 is over. Eventually we would like to purchase tablets for the children to use and a laptop for the tutor.
Thank you all for being patient with us as we silently make moves! Please stay safe and God bless.
